Experiential learning in our kitchen laboratory distinguishes NYU Steinhardt’s Department of Nutrition and Food Studies. The culinary focus plays a critical role in bridging our distinct programs through the development of food literacy. Hands-on culinary learning allows students to experience and appreciate the nutritional, cultural, and social aspects of food while gaining a fundamental understanding of food science.

This interactive workshop with NYU professor and cookbook author Lourdes Castro will consist of both cooking and tasting.
