F=Food Museums Around the World

Thanks to Atlas Obscura, you can take a virtual or live tour of the world’s food museums right here in this post. Just click on the highlighted link to go from Japan to Tennessee and discover all there is to see, drink, eat, and experience.

Take a deep dive into the world’s foods from pizza to potatoes, because there’s nothing like a hyper-specific food museum. Beginning in 2016, Atlas Obscura featured a list of 38 food museums but culinary curiosity led to the community adding 43 new museums in later years, prompting the mag to publish an updated list- a revamped guide, if you will, so interested parties can make a pilgrimage on behalf of their favorite condiment, drink, or dish.

Eighty-one spots that feature butter museums to a shrine to the rice cracker, they leave nothing out. So follow your nose to the spot that intrigues you most as you peruse this list of culinary delights. Bona petit!

I have to include the editor’s note here: “Visit each place’s website or social media to get the latest info on openings, closures, and how to support them.”

WOD Challenge 03-31-21 Change in Plans

Well, I had a theme for the upcoming A to Z challenge, but a new idea struck last night and I need some crumbs of wisdom from you, dear readers! I was going to do my posts on Music I’ve Loved, however, it occurred to me that I have a plethora of Gastro Obscura newsletters piled up, so I’ve decided that maybe you might be more interested in learning about different foods and their cultures from around the world. What do you think? Surely, I have an alphabet’s worth of material here to write about, and I could further yours and my own education on these culinary delights.

So, quick, there isn’t much time! Please let me know your thoughts on the matter. Maybe I can somehow tie in the occasional musical selection within each post, maybe at the bottom of it, or something like that. Say I’m writing about some obscure nut from Australia (that’s coming up for sure), I might include a song like Lime in the Coconut or, you know, something that fits the post. Or not, whichever you choose. The food posts may be enough in your opinion- they will probably be a decent length as they will be very informative.

Thanks in advance,

Peace out for now!

Tomorrow starts the A to Z Challenge!!
