THE DISGUSTING FOOD MUSEUM COMES TO LOS ANGELES
Featuring Foods from Different Cultures,
The Disgusting Food Museum Gives Visitors a Chance to
Experience Tastes and Smells from Around the World
The Disgusting Food Museum, featuring the most provocative foods from around the world, is opening its doors in Los Angeles for visitors to see, smell, and even taste (if they dare) international foods. The Disgusting Food Museum is not just an exhibit; it’s a celebration of food from around the world, highlighting how different cultures may or may not view certain things as disgusting.
Exhibited at the A+D Architecture and Design Museum in the Downtown Los Angeles Arts District, The Disgusting Food Museum welcomes visitors to enjoy a culinary journey beginning December 9, 2018 through February 17, 2019.
The Disgusting Food Museum will introduce its visitors to worldwide delicacies from 80 diverse food exhibits that include:
· Frog smoothies from Peru
· Maggot cheese from Sardinia
· The notoriously smelly fruit, the Durian, from Thailand
· Surströmming, the infamous putrid sea herring dish from Sweden
· Mouse Wine, drowned baby mice in rice wine from China
Watch this video about the Disgusting Food Museum at your own risk. You will see things that might be very disturbing to yourself or others!
Sweden’s famous Disgusting Food Museum houses such delicacies as Mouse Wine, Jell-O Salad, and Surströmming – fermented herring from Sweden. These serve as catalysts for an exploration of the concept of disgust through different culturally and individually informed reactions.
“The evolutionary function of disgust is to help us avoid disease and unsafe food. Disgust is one of the six fundamental human emotions. While the emotion is universal, the foods that we find disgusting are not. What is delicious to one person can be revolting to another. Disgusting Food Museum invites visitors to explore the world of food and challenge their notions of what is and what isn’t edible. Could changing our ideas of disgust help us embrace the environmentally sustainable foods of the future?”
Foodies, travelers, and the just plain curious can explore unfamiliar food creations, smell new and face-cringing aromas and try select samples at the far from usual grand finale tasting bar! Amazing and bizarre Instagramable moments are endless at the internationally known museum.
First displayed in Sweden, the exotic collection of foods was conceived and curated by psychologist, Dr. Samuel West, well-known as “Dr. Failure” after the runaway success of his Museum of Failure. Dr. West wanted to create an exhibit focused on exploring the shared human experience of disgust and expand the discussion of more environmentally sustainable proteins of the future such as insects and lab-grown meats.
“The museum aims to change our view of what is disgusting or not and expose our minds to what is known as normal in other cultures,” says Dr. Samuel West.
This iteration of the museum has been designed by the A+D Architecture and Design Museum and produced by Special Entertainment Events (SEE).
“After the success of The Museum of Failure, we’re looking forward to once again joining Dr. West on another exciting journey of intriguing, unusual, unconventional, and hugely entertaining concepts,” says Martin Biallas, President of SEE.
The Disgusting Food Museum will be on exhibit December 9, 2018 to February 17, 2019 at the A+D Architecture and Design Museum, 900 E 4th St, Los Angeles, CA 90013.
