Best Museum Exhibit

"From Fields to Family"

Visitors have always flocked to the International District for food. But the Wing Luke Museum of the Asian Pacific American Experience last year invited tourists to experience something different: food scholarship. The museum bravely took on the huge topic of local Asian-Pacific-American foodways with "From Fields to Family," delving into Filipino farm labor, Seattle's Chinese restaurants, yearly rituals observed by Japanese-Americans, and Marination Mobile's menu. The exhibit was highly informative and—more important—fun: Children weren't the only ones drawn to interactive stations featuring fabric spring rolls and chopstick dexterity tests.
