Food is an important part of holiday celebrations throughout the world. We will join a Freer and Sackler docent to investigate works of art across Asia to discover how people in the past and the present celebrated through food and rituals. What foods were important and how they were grown or made? How and when were certain foods eaten? What special meaning did some foods have and why? What rituals and foods are still part of cultural traditions that people observe today? Explore food culture and celebrations through art. Hosted by Chevy Chase At Home.
