Friday, I visited the Southern Food & Beverage Museum for the SoFab Gala which was my first time visiting the museum, such great facilities that will make you intensely hungry. The museum opened its doors in 2008 (first exhibition in 2004) to help the world discover, understand and celebrate the foods and drinks of the South. The museum makes a point to focus on the phenomenal culture found in New Orleans. Permanent exhibits you can find at the museum are Tout de Sweet’ All About Sugar, A Table at Galatoires, Acadian to Cajun: From Migration to Commercialization, Capturing the Coast! Eating from the Gulf, Eating Around the South, Barbecue Nation, Southern Likker, Cooking through the Years, Our Stoves, and Corn in America. All of which are phenomenal exhibits, they accurately show the Southern Fascination with food and why we have the right to love it so!
Also in the Southern Food and Beverage Museum is the Museum of the American Cocktail. This museum showcases the cocktail evolution as well as takes a look at the origins.
The Southern Food and Beverage Museum has so much to offer. It’s also great to see the tribute to my beloved and favorite, Chef Leah Chase! Check it out!
