With the exhibition "What does Switzerland eat?" the Swiss National Museum is interested in what is cooked in Mr. and Mrs. Switzerland's pot.
"Show me what you eat, I'll tell you who you are": behind the burning adage of current events at a time of social networks, immortalizing your daily special in plain sight has become a real social phenomenon. As a result of the infinite flow of information, traceability, the seasonality of the food we eat and the working conditions of those involved in the food chain are nowadays criteria of choice, making food a social, political and economic standard. A vital act, eating is at the crossroads of cultural and medical practices, while referring to religious and ethical choices.
