In Seattle, food has always meant more than a meal. The city’s journey from the earliest oyster middens to the modern four-star restaurants is a reflection of Seattle’s geography, history, and people. MOHAI’s Edible City: A Delicious Journey serves up the story of how people eat in Seattle, and how urban palates have developed over the years. Curated by two-time James Beard Award winner Rebekah Denn, Edible City will be a main course on the city's cultural buffet. Discover the secret history of the Pacific Northwest’s favorite foods!
