This course gives students the opportunity to approach one of the most important and world-renowned aspects of Italian culture: la cucina italiana. Classes will alternate hands-on cooking classes at Eataly, with an understanding of local cuisine, practical tastings, and outdoor food experiences. Students will be asked to discuss Italian recipes, cultural differences in cooking, and in the approach to food. We will also discuss historical and cultural reasons behind the development of different cuisines, ingredients, and cooking practices throughout the country, not to mention the importance of regional food and culinary habits.
