Geography of Food Lab
The Department of Geography invites you to visit the Geography of Food Laboratory! Sign up at the Department of Geography table in the Jordan Hall atrium. Food Lab Tours will leave from the table at 10:00 AM. From there we will walk through historic Dunn Woods to the laboratory in Student Building 018.
All participants must be over 12 years of age.
Once at the lab we will prepare a four course Roman meal which will allow you to experience:
- How we can “cook” food using common acids like citrus juice
- Examine how starch and egg works to bind things by making Carbonara, delicious cheese and Parma ham-laden pasta
- We'll pasteurize a very small portion of skirt steak and finish it off (caramelize it) with a torch
- Use cheese, butter and fruit to make a simple, but amazing cake
