ENV 160 Science of a Sustainable Gourmet

This course explores foods, including the science behind the ways we grow, process, distribute, and cook them. We consider the impacts food choices have on our environment and health. We ask what dietary choices are the most sustainable and how to make informed decisions about buying food. Finally, we discuss the aesthetic and cultural attributes of really delicious food.
