Pittsburgh museum features culinary arts
The decorative arts meet the culinary arts in What's In Your Tureen: Soup, Stew, or Rago & ucirc;t, a tasty Pittsburgh Carnegie Museum of Art exhibition about soup tureens and the delights of dining at table from 1700 to the present.
Ten tureens-ranging from an elegant early 18th-century Meissen china tureen to the utilitarian 1975 Rival Crock-Pot & reg;-are matched with recipes for the soups, stews, chowders, and rago & ucirc;ts that might have gone in them.
The exhibition is on view in the Treasure Room through August 11, 2002.
