What’s Cooking Wednesday: What’s That Smell?
Smells are everywhere. Realtors bake cookies and make coffee to help sell houses. Proud owners of new cars draw in deep breaths of “new car smell.” But did you ever smell an exhibit in a museum?
Visitors to “What’s Cooking, Uncle Sam?” might notice something different about this exhibit. Or at least, their noses might notice. Go and smell it for yourself! The exhibit closes on January 3, 2011, and the smell will be only an olfactory memory.
