Exhibit Opening Night - July 9, 2015
You’re invited to join us for the opening the new exhibit, “Mennonite Food: Tastes in Transition” at Mennonite Heritage Village on July 9 at 7:00 p.m.
The exhibit explores the question, “What is Russian Mennonite food?” The answer to this question is interwoven with complex issues including religious beliefs, ethnic traditions, socio-economic realities, local landscapes and environments, neighbouring cultures, world politics, and international migrations. All of these influences have resulted in a diverse food tradition with a rich history. Today, nearly five centuries after the birth of Anabaptism, defining Mennonite food continues to be a dynamic and unfolding story.
