Want to learn about food science, nutrition and cooking this summer?
The University of Texas is offering four classes, starting June 16, in the Susie Jastrow Teaching Kitchen, which is part of its nutrition sciences department in Mary Gearing Hall.
Susie’s Kitchen, as the new series is known, will cover some of the hottest topics in nutrition right now, including the Mediterranean diet, fermentation, plant-based diets and anti-inflammatory foods. Each Saturday class is taught by advanced undergraduate students in the nutritional sciences department and features a classroom portion on the science behind the diet recommendations and then a cooking class in the test kitchen where students learn how to incorporate the recommendations into their cooking. The class then gets to eat the food together for lunch.
The classes from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. cost $100 each, or you can get a discount if you buy all four.
