Cooking + Science = Harvard
Harvard University's School of Engineering and Applied Sciences kicks off it's third season of their trailblazing and highly popular public lecture series on Cooking and Science this Tuesday, September 4 at 7:00 p.m. The course, pairing Harvard researchers and world-class Chefs, is offered during the Fall Semester and fills up quickly with a long waiting list for interested students.
There is a students-only lab matched with a public lecture featuring someone well-known, often internationally-recognized, in the world of cooking. For anyone interested in food it is an absolutely fascinating series, often focusing on cutting-edge technologies. For those who have attended in the past, you will recognize the format. The first 15 minutes of the lecture recaps the lab study and features the equation of the week. After the equation is presented it has become a tradition to applaud loudly. I try to make every lecture. I say trailblazing as other universities have approached Harvard to emulate their first-of-it's-kind model of bringing food and cooking into the halls of academia. All lectures are free and open to the public. For more information visit here: 2012 Lecture Series Schedule
