The Ontario Science Centre’s gastronomy exhibit is surprisingly non-molecular
Though nothing compares to the tower of shopping carts in the old food pavilion, the Ontario Science Centre’s summer exhibit Food: Sink Your Teeth Into Science fills the food science void with celebrity chef appearances, nature walks and $20 gift cards from Subway.
Keeping in line with food trends, the exhibit takes a local approach, with workshops on agriculture, edible wild plant identification and composting. Adults can also see Bob Blumer this weekend (Saturday and Sunday) and John Placko, the director of culinary excellence (we’re not kidding, that’s his title) at Maple Leaf Foods, on September 5 and 6.
Kids will likely enjoy the Family Food Game Show the most; it’s essentially Family Feud with questions pertaining to food. It’s mildly educational as the host sprinkles in food trivia in between rounds. Game show participants are given a $20 Subway gift card; audience members get a $5 card.
