JBF in the News: Expo Milano in National Geographic

The future American Pavilion at Expo Milano

 

No one's ever been hungry at a world's fair: ice cream cones, waffles, and popcorn are just some of the formerly underexposed foods that broke into the mainstream thanks to the exhibitions, while foreign countries have used the gatherings to share their cuisines on a global stage.

 

Yesterday, on NationalGeographic.com, Mary Beth Albright looked ahead to Expo Milano 2015, the first world's fair to focus exclusively on food. She also previews the USA Pavilion, highlighting its ambitious design elements, such as a functioning vertical garden, and its planned exhibits on obesity, GMOs, and other hot food-system topics. The James Beard Foundation and the International Culinary Center are leading the American pavilion's conception and buildout. More on that here.
