Study food, make food, and eat food. And get a full course credit while doing it!
In this forum, we will learn about food growers and producers in Connecticut. We will take weekly field trips to visit farms, dairies, restaurants, bakeries, and factories to develop an understanding and appreciation of Connecticut-made foods and the processes by which they are produced. There will be readings each week relating to the places we visit and workshops about making bread, cheese, preserved foods, etc. The site visits and workshops will be a practical application of the assigned readings. Participants will also be required to help organize and run the weekly Wesleyan Farmers Market.
Classes will meet on Fridays and will be taught by Ellie Wiener ’09 and Tressa Eaton ’09. Email Tressa as soon as possible to get an application: teaton@wes.
