Stay connected to art with The Way We Eat at Home​

While our doors are closed, we are bringing you ways to learn, be inspired and get creative at home and online. ​​ 

The Way We Eat brings together works of art related to food. Drawn from the Art Gallery’s extensive Asian art collection and loans from private collections, the exhibition considers what we eat; how food is made, stored and consumed; the evolution of culinary wares; cultural exchange; and the ritual and symbolic meanings associated with food.​ 

Explore this ancient source of inspiration, anxiety and pleasure with The Way We Eat at Home. 

Helping you find inspiration through #TheWayWeEatAtHome

We asked some friends of the Art Gallery what they are eating at their places, and to share a recipe they love, a family favourite or something they have cooked multiple times during the lockdown.  ​
