Cuisine from the Collections is the Academy’s annual event featuring food and drink inspired by the 18 million specimens in the Academy’s scientific collections. On Saturday, November 8, we celebrated the Academy’s special exhibit, Chocolate: The Exhibition. Guests enjoyed a wide variety of foods, including game sliders, frog legs, and chocolate fondue. Academy scientists displayed scientific specimens and discussed what exactly was on the plates.
This year, patron guests enjoyed a chocolate-themed VIP reception ahead of the main event. Nearly 300 guests helped to support the Academy’s ongoing work, from mission-critical programs of research and education to collections care, exhibits, and administration. Huge thanks to the committee for their outreach and support!
