Cyprus Food and Nutrition Museum is a non profit Cultural and Research society which aims at conducting and undertaking initiatives and activities to promote knowledge and practice of traditional foods. We have developed an electronic depository of data related to food history and culture: The Cyprus Food Virtual Museum,where information, along with visual representations, from the prehistoric till the current time, on the use of Cypriot traditional foods, associated everyday practices and meals, recipes, tools, and processing techniques have been digitized.
Cyprus Food and Nutrition Museum is an associate partner of the Virtual Museum Transnational Network Network (V-musT.net!), the Learning Museum Network. We are participating in the development of Food & Drink Europeana (the largest digitized encyclopedia in Europe) and in the Leonardo Da Vinci exchange program "Culinary Bridges across Europe", which aims to get acquainted with the gastronomic culture of Europe. Members of our team have participated in several national funded research programs and bilateral projects and have established collaborations with various research centers in Europe and elsewhere.
At a national level, amongst others, we have established the national contest in traditional cooking among children and youth, we are organizing practical workshops on traditional cookery and educational museulogy workshops on the folklore of food.
