Ethnocuisine (36 hours)
Explore the complex roles of food from an anthropological perspective. Food is a universal aspect of the human experience with specific cultural, symbolic, economic, and historical corollaries. Review the ethics and implications of food and illustrate how the peasant food of Third World nations and hunter/gatherer cuisine is far superior to a fast-food diet. Assignments include preparing a variety of food in your own kitchen from produce you buy locally in your region.
