Enjoy a globetrotting gustatory journey, hearing about the “power bars” of the ancient Africans, the hymns of praise to Ninkasi, Mesopotamian goddess of beer, or the more cautious advice given on papyrus, Egyptian father to son, regarding the hazards of excess drinking. A docent and a storyteller who has performed at many Penn Museum events, Ms. Belluomini has offered food-focused tours to Culinary Art Institute students. Free with Museum admission. Tours leave from the Kamin main entrance.
