After a two year absence, I will be participating once more in the NYU Italian Cuisine and Mediterranean Diet program in beautiful Florence. This course always seems to bring together fascinating lecturers from all over Italy and the world as well as some of the most engaged and hungry students from the States. Many good friends have been made at La Pietra, NYU’s stunning campus in the Florentine hills.
I will be giving a lecture on using ethnographic methods in food studies. Lisa Sasson and I will do a lecture and tasting on mineral water. We are going to try to bring together the social, cultural and nutritional aspects of mineral water in Italy.
