This program is a 10-week course created by Fabrizia Lanza that seeks to inspire and educate students who are urged to unveil a beyond-the-recipe approach to food through immersive and thoughtful experiences about growing, cooking, eating.
Lectures, tastings, and hands-on lessons both in the kitchen and on the land will engage your brain, your hands, and your taste buds as we move from soil to stove to spoon. You will learn how to open your eyes to the complexity of our food systems, grapple with concepts of biodiversity and agricultural labor, or consider the prejudices and mythologies that underlie our beliefs about traditional cuisines.
You do not need to be a professional chef, farmer, or food scholar. This program is open to all levels, but you should have some experience interacting with the food world. You might consider yourself a bit of a cook, a bit of a scholar, a bit of a historian, and a bit of a storyteller. You DO need to be motivated by curiosity, passion, and a sense of responsibility to the world. The program is designed for anyone who wants to reconnect the simple act of eating to the marvel that lies behind it.
