"Show me what you eat, I will tell you who you are": behind the burning adage of news at the time of social networks, immortalising his dish of the day in the light of all has moved into a real phenomenon of society. As a result of the infinite flow of information, traceability, seasonality of food and the working conditions of those who participate in the food chain are now criteria of choice, making food a standard social, political and economic. A vital act, feeding oneself is at the crossroads of cultural and medical practices, while referring to religious and ethical choices.

Totally in tune with the era, the exhibition "À table! What does Switzerland eat? » explores what is cooking under the lid of the pot of Homo helveticus. In constant evolution, Swiss culinary culture is reflected in the plurality of its regional specialities. What is our gastronomic heritage? Where does it take its roots? Approached from various scientific, historical and playful angles, these themes do not omit the taste part, which promises to leave no one indifferent. Planted décor, table upright: the exhibition revolves around table manners, different modes of preparation and consumption of food. She also wondered about the mechanisms of starvation and periods of abundance, taboos and the effects of food modes.

Thanks to many new objects, as well as collaborations with slow food and the Maison de la Riviere, the Swiss National Museum – Château de Prangins offers a focus on French-speaking Switzerland. The exhibition also highlights the social links created around family recipes, as well as the knowledge transmitted through professional innovations. Local production, biodiversity and plant heritage will be honored by the seasons in the Museum's vegetable garden, the largest Conservatory of forgotten vegetables and rare fruits in Switzerland.
