CHEM 101 Introduction to Chemistry: Chemistry of Food

Dr. Amanda Hughes

Why are the stomach contents of calves added to milk in order to make cheese? What causes a soufflé to be so light and airy? Students will find answers to these questions and more as they dive head-first into the delicious world of culinary chemistry! Prepare your taste buds for tour de force as we visit two food-centric European cities and deconstruct the chemistry behind local treats.

ENG 349 Topics: A Moveable Feast: Food, Culture & Travel Writing

Dr. Charlotte Rich 

This course will explore connections between the practice of travel writing and the gastronomic cultures of Germany and France. Excursions will concern the food heritage and culture of these cities (e.g., markets, bakeries, restaurants), as well as other sites of historical and cultural interest, and students will write several journal entries or blog posts on these experiences.

IDST 350 Topics: Cuisine & Culture in Paris & Munich

Prof. David Dominé 

This interdisciplinary course will not only demonstrate how food is an integral part of France and Germany while showcasing their respective cultures, it will also contextualize American eating habits, gastronomic traditions, and the current trends that are shaping the food scene in the United States.

All KIIS course credit is awarded by Western Kentucky University.

Program Excursions

From Munich's central Marienplatz, we explore the history of the city, visiting museums and sites of cultural interest to learn how history shaped the city's traditional and ethnic communities, and their foods and culture.
