This semester, Harvard renews its acclaimed Science & Cooking class, offered for its third year by the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences. New this year, EdX (Harvard and MIT’s online course initiative) offers Science & Cooking for free, online. Registration deadline for the online course is Oct 8. 

Other highlights?

A spring freshmen seminar on corn, “Corn” – yes, just corn, taught by Professor Noreen Tuross, that will test the theory (made famous by Michael Pollan) that Americans are pretty much made of corn. 

Two design courses from the Graduate School of Design, one on alimentary design and the second on redesigning the supermarket shelf.

A new course from the French department, “Talking About Food,” that analyzes food from the perspective of 19th century French aesthetic discourse.
