Meal Planning and Meal Management in the Italian Family

Conducted in English

To explore the meaning of foods in Italian family meals, the course examines the development, structure, and maintenance of the Italian family through history. Evaluation of different regional meals and examples of Southern, Central and Northern family dishes will be prepared during workshops. We will also compare and examine various social issues associated with the study of Italian families. Students will have accommodations with Italian families for the whole intersession program and they will take part in preparing three meals a week with their host family.
