6sqft recently interviewed the Museum of Food and Drink‘s executive director Peter Kim and the Neighborhood Preservation Center‘s executive director Felicia Mayro about how food and preservation fit together. As part of the interview, Peter will be giving free admission to the MOFAD Lab in Williamsburg to one lucky 6sqft reader and a guest. You’ll get to see their first exhibit “Flavor: Making It and Faking It,” an in-depth and multi-sensory exploration of the $25 billion flavor simulation industry. Thanks to science and history displays, the one-of-a-kind “smell synth,” and various tasting tablets of flavors like MSG and vanilla bean, you’ll never think about flavoring the same again.

6sqft asked Peter and Felicia about a particular food or food-related memory from growing up that really sticks with them to this day. What’s your favorite memory? Maybe it’s your grandmother’s red sauce or your father’s smoked kielbasa. Or maybe it’s just sitting around the dinner table after a long day. Let us know in the comments below!

And that’s it—you’re entered to win two tickets to the MOFAD Lab! The deadline to enter is Tuesday, March 8th. We’ll be announcing the winner on the 9th.

    I remember always looking forward to pizza on Friday nights as a kid. It wasn’t fancy, but it was a little tradition and one of the only times we all ate together as a family.

    While the thought of eating one now makes me cringe… I fondly remember the days when my mom wasn’t in the mood to cook and my family would jump in the car and head for the Burger King drive thru for 99 cent Whoppers.

    In middle school, my mom would pick me up after soccer practice and we’d go to KFC!

    Driving from the bottom of Florida back to NYC for some Sicilian pizza is my favourite food memory. When I was a kid, my family moved from NYC to Florida and needless to say, the pizza wasn’t as good down there. We would make 20-hour road trips back to the city to visit relatives and when we would get to the Big Apple the first thing we would eat was Sicilian pizza from a place in Howard Beach (Queens). Pure awesomeness!

    My mom is a preacher and she’d be tired after a week of church around Easter, so we always went to Taco Bell for Easter!
