The course will also feature a number of weekly themes. For example, students may spend a week focusing on beverages, or the production and consumption of a specific food item. Finally, the course will include an exploration of how recent developments such as food tourism, television cooking shows, and globalization of food tastes have both shaped and been shaped by eating habits in the region.
