The Disgusting Food Museum, featuring the most provocative foods from around the world, is opening its doors in Las Vegas for visitors to see, smell, and even taste (if they dare) international foods. The Disgusting Food Museum is not just an exhibit, but a celebration of food from around the world highlighting how different cultures may or may not view certain things as disgusting. Exhibited at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center on the world famous Las Vegas Strip, The Disgusting Food Museum welcomes visitors to enjoy a culinary journey during its limited “Pop Up” dates beginning Tuesday, October 8 through Thursday, October 10, 2019. The DFM is THE FEATURED EXHHIBIT within the Global Food & Beverage Expo.
The Disgusting Food Museum will introduce its visitors to worldwide delicacies from 80 diverse food exhibits that include:
* Frog smoothies from Peru
* Maggot cheese from Sardinia
* The notoriously smelly fruit, the Durian, from Thailand
* Surströmming, the infamous putrid sea herring dish from Sweden
* Mouse Wine, drowned baby mice in rice wine from China
Foodies, travelers, and the just plain curious can explore unfamiliar food creations, smell new and face-cringing aromas and try select samples at the far from usual grand finale tasting bar! Amazing and bizarre Instagramable moments are endless at the internationally known museum.
First displayed in Sweden, the exotic collection of foods was conceived and curated by psychologist, Dr. Samuel West, well-known as “Dr. Failure” after the runaway success of his Museum of Failure. Dr. West wanted to create an exhibit focused on exploring the shared human experience of disgust and expand the discussion of more environmentally sustainable proteins of the future such as insects and lab-grown meats. “The museum aims to change our view of what is disgusting or not and expose our minds to what is known as normal in other cultures,” says Dr. Samuel West.
This iteration of the museum is produced by Special Entertainment Events (SEE) and Story Tellers, LLC. in conjunction with the GFBE. “After the success of The Museum of Failure, we’re looking forward to once again joining Dr. West on another exciting journey of intriguing, unusual, unconventional, and hugely entertaining concepts,” says Martin Biallas, President of SEE.
One-day admission can be purchased in advance for $15 on www.gfba.vegas or for $20 at the door.
