Beyond Food

  • Yale Landscape Lab 100 West Campus Drive Orange, CT (map)

Join us for our monthly(ish) culinary experience dedicated to interrogating the role food plays in our society. As an art form, an economic driver, and a vehicle to build community, food shapes – and is shaped by – the innovative nature of those who grow, prepare, and deliver it to the final customer. Our partner organizations, chefs, and cooks will use the products of the season of the farm, the medicinal plant collection, and the natural ecosystem at the Yale Landscape Lab to tell their story through food. Join us around the campfire for some food and some thought-provoking conversation — no background or experience needed.

Our March 1 event will focus on the exciting world of microbes and our food. For those who missed last semester's Fermentation Intensive, we invite you to come take a look at the different processes by which microbes alter our food, the impact they have on our health, and how different cultures make use of microbes to create flavorful traditional dishes. Expect a sensory experience involving sight, smell, and taste as we deep dive into this topic. Bentley Lim, who was a huge part of the Fermentation Intensive team, will be joining us.
