This week I am heading back to school! I am excited to be starting the Master’s Program in Food Studies at NYU Steinhardt and to be dedicating my days (and nights) to learning more about my favorite topic…food!
I am thrilled to have the opportunity to join one of the country’s first food studies master’s programs and to gain a deeper understanding of cultural, political and economic issues in food.
Here are some of the courses that I will be looking forward to taking:
- Food composition
- Menu planning and assessment
- Food safety
- Dietary patterns
- Diet and health issues
- Dietary recommendations
- Food products for nutritional purposes
- Examination of world cuisines and their influences on late 20th century North American food, meals, and menus
Stay tuned for more exciting updates as I enter this next chapter of my life.
