MicroChefs: An Evening for Curious Adults


Thursday, July 19, 2018, 7:30pm to 10:30pm


Harvard Museum of Natural History, 26 Oxford Street, Cambridge

Wine, beer, sake, coffee, kombucha, yogurt, cheese, chocolate: discover how our favorite foods are created by tiny microbial “chefs.” Indulge in the edgy intersection of microbiology and cooking to learn how these microbes make their magic. Food and drink will be served at this 21+ event.
During this event, you can:

  • Taste a variety of food and drink created by microorganisms.
  • Interact with microbial scientists.
  • Participate in a flash presentation about the science behind fermented foods—from sauerkraut and kimchi to an aged cheese rind.
  • Explore the exhibition Microbial Life: A Universe at the Edge of Sight.
  • Visit the museum’s sixteen exhibitions.

Advance tickets required: $10 members/$15 nonmembers. Tickets include museum admission, one drink ticket and four food tastings. All attendees must be 21+ (valid government ID is required for entry).
