Different cooking implements representing different types of cooking techniques are on display for the first time simultaneously at Arlington Heights Memorial Library, Aurora Public Library, Gail Borden Public Library District and Schaumburg Township District Library. The over 250 culinary tools were drawn from the personal collections of food industry veterans, Mel and Janet Mickevic. The exhibit was originally on display throughout the Kendall College at National Louis University. These objects are publicly viewable in this exhibit for the very first time due to a visionary partnership with the Kendall College Trust.
