Who is the course for?
This course is primarily designed for those who want to understand why we are so obsessed with food, and what actually happens when we invite friends to eat or drink, or accept to be their guests.
It will be particularly useful for those who plan to study or work in the culinary and hotel management fields; those who already work in these fields, and want to deepen their understanding of these issues; and those who study humanities, social sciences, biology and nutrition, and want to enhance their knowledge of the social ties and potential conflicts that stem from food.
