Description:

The website for the Food Museum Online is loaded with exhibits, and it merits several visits. Lively historic and contemporary drawings, photos, and videos populate the lengthy homepage of this New Mexico-based site about the origins of foods, food issues, food advertising, and foods in other countries. Visitors can find the newest exhibit at the top of the homepage, which is called "Feast or Famine", and addresses the paradox of the one billion people whom are malnourished in the world, and the one billion that are overnourished or obese. Visitors can find related exhibits, "Eating Disorders" and "School Lunch Reform", as links at the end of the Feast or Famine exhibit. The "Watermelon" exhibit, about halfway down the homepage, includes the history of watermelons, comparisons against other types of melons, botanical drawings, watermelon-themed toys, a postcard, a Japanese woodcut, and a link to guidance in choosing a ripe watermelon. Visitors shouldn't miss the multimedia exhibit, "Making Crepes: Then & Now", which includes a 30-second video of a cook using a French Crepmatic, which produces a square (rather than round) crepe.
