BRODHEAD - Popcorn, pickles and potato chips are part of the food history of the city of Brodhead, Wisconsin. "Key Ingredients: America by Food" exhibit, coming in May and June of 2011 to the Brodhead Public Library, is part of the Smithsonian Institution's Museum on Main Street program, "Most of us eat every day without giving a second thought to consider the wealth of history and culture that influence dining habits and taste preferences," said Lea Brookman, local Key Ingredients project manager who initiated this Humanities Council project. "The Key Ingredients exhibit explores how our recipes, menus, ceremonies and etiquette have been directly shaped by many factors, including our country's rich immigrant experience; the history and innovations of food preparation technology; and the ever-changing availability of key ingredients.
