Why do I love peanut butter? Where does my sausage REALLY come from?

    I have been an OMSI member off and on for years. So very much fun and learning for my son. This would be a wonderful opportunity for my SO and I to enjoy some OMSI time too!

    This sounds interesting. But if I find out where my sausage REALLY comes from, it may ruin it for me forever. I’m willing to take the chance!!! I wanna go!

    My mouth and my mind will meet up to explore food, that sounds awesome. I am a scientist (or actually I am becoming one) from the Netherlands, here in Portland to do an internship. And I love all the amazing food to be found around here. Those two together quite clearly state why I should definitely be there! It would be an awesome experience for me to add to the things that I can do/have done in my short time period here in Portland!

    eat all the food

  19. Anne May 19, 2017 at 3:35 pm #

    Whoa. I love food. And good times at OMSI! Would be a great weekend!

    This sounds like a really fun opportunity! I already love to attend cooking classes where you get to prepare your own delicious new meal that you actually repeat in real life cause let’s face it, unless you have someone teaching you to ‘walk the walk’ or in this case, ‘cook the cook’ it ain’t happening. Plus joining forces with OMSI bringing in science that will either make you become a more meticulous cook knowing the science behind a process or go ‘gah, is that what I’ve been eating all my life?’ Either way, I’m down to have a blast at ‘Food Smarts.’
