Cuisine from the Collections 

Cuisine from the Collections is the Academy’s annual event featuring edibles from the everyday to the exotic. The cocktail party features food and drink inspired by the 18 million specimens in the Academy’s scientific collections. This year adds a sweet touch as we celebrate the Academy’s special exhibit, Chocolate: The Exhibition. A variety of food stations will include ingredients not usually found in the kitchen. Academy scientists will be on hand with scientific specimens to answer questions guests may have about what exactly it is they are enjoying.
