Savour: Food Culture in the Age of Enlightenment

  • Jennifer OConnor
Keywords: Food, Art, Enlightenment, Culture


The current exhibition at the Gardiner Museum, Savour: Food Culture in the Age of Enlightenment, explores how eating, cooking, and dining were reimagined in England and France from the 1650s to the 1790s. Drawing from the Gardiner’s collection of ceramics as well as works on loan from other museums and private collections, curator Meredith Chiton, Curator Emerita at the Gardiner who specializes in “early European porcelain, dining, and social culture of the eighteenth century”, combines the functional with the curious and the historic with the contemporary.
