Culinary Expeditions

A Celebration of Food and Culture Inspired by the

Penn Museum Treasures

Culinary Expeditions is the result of a two year-long collaboration between the Penn Museum staff and the Women’s Committee of the Penn Museum. This 133 page, full-color hardcover publication includes beautiful photographs of food-related Museum artifacts, fascinating descriptions of foods, food-making techniques, and stories about the cultures of Africa and Egypt, Greece and Rome, Asia and the Middle East, Mesoamerica and Native America. It will sweep you away. 
On Monday, May 5, 2014, the Women's Committee of the Penn Museum celebrated the launch of  Culinary Expeditions: A Celebration of Food and Culture Inspired by Penn Museum Treasures, at a festive—and delectable—luncheon at the Penn Museum. Julian Siggers, Ph.D., Williams Director of the Penn Museum, and Jane Hickman, Ph.D., Editor of the new book were keynote speakers for this wonderful event.
