The founder and curator of the Burnt Food Museum isn’t just a creative cook. She’s also a Grammy-Nominated composer and performer whose works for electric harp and symphony are played throughout the world and whose award-winning musical “The Golden Cage” was just released worldwide on the Streaming Musical network.
Want to see what kind of person has such a creative mind that she can invent her own instrument, write musicals win a lifetime achievement award on one of the world’s most unique instruments – AND create a museum that’s appeared in countless books, media appearances – and even as a question on NPR’s “Wait Wait Don’t Tell Me?”
Boston Area audiences can see her live Feb. 10, 2024 at the Center for Arts “TCAN” in Natick, MA in a Pre-Valentine’s show. Can’t get to Boston? Check out her YouTube Channel, follow her on Instagram – or get more creative yourself in her Creative Resonance Project.

Welcome to the Burnt Food Museum
The museum was founded in the late 1980’s one night when found-and-curator Deborah Henson-Conant put on a small pot of Hot Apple Cider to heat, then received an unexpected . . . fascinating . . . and very long phone call. By the time Deborah returned to the kitchen, the Cider had become a “Cinder” and thus the first, and perhaps still the most impressive, exhibit: “Free Standing Hot Apple Cider” was born.
SINCE THEN, countless other works have entered the museum.
