Culinary Curiosity
October 4, 2019 – January 5, 2020

A collaborative exhibition by Arlington Heights Memorial Library, Aurora Public Library, Gail Borden Public Library District, and Schaumburg Township District Library.

For centuries, humans have used unique tools and gadgets to create delectable food for friends, family and customers.  From a Hindu Water Ewer to a Beehive Smoker and all other manner of other cooking implements, the Culinary Curiosity exhibition celebrates the technical innovation in the world of food. The culinary tools were drawn from the personal collections of food industry veterans, Mel and Janet Mickevic. The exhibit was originally on display throughout the Kendall College at National Louis University. Over 250 objects are viewable by the public for the very first time in this exhibit.

This exhibit is made possible by the Kendall College Trust.
