Information

Founded in 2015, the Museum of Culinary Art and Table Culture is a place of debate, engagement and research into historical and contemporary food and drink culture in all its facets. It sees itself in the tradition of the Culinary Art Museum of the International Association of Chefs, which existed from 1909 to 1937 and whose stored collection was completely destroyed in the Second World War. However, the current museum's collection includes items from the German Restaurant Museum, which existed in Frankfurt am Main from 1941 to 1944. With the acquisition of the menu and menu card collection of the Hamburg collector Wolfgang Gross, the largest collection of menu cards and menus is now in Frankfurt. On the basis of cultural history, the exhibitions and events will also focus on today's culinary art and dining culture.
