This course provides a unique opportunity to explore food and cultures from around the globe. Every day, people throughout the world must procure, select, prepare and consume food to sustain life. The manner in which they do this reflects complex relationships and interactions among the individuals, their culture, and the world in which they live. This course provides an opportunity to explore the relationships between food, history, culture, and traditions through topics such as nutritional needs, food and religion, and food by regions. Contemporary issues will be related to historical approaches in order to facilitate a more complete understanding of international food and nutrition phenomena. The course includes hands-on kitchen laboratories to introduce distinct flavors, preparation methods, and culinary skills including food safety.
