Meal Planning & Meal Management in the Italian Family

Conducted in English

Understanding the meaning of food 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 be accommodated with Italian families for the whole program and they will take part in preparing 9 meals with the family throughout the semester.

Students are required to write a journal of their experience with the Italian Family. Students are required to collect recipes, observe the family dynamics and write a recipe book as your final project. Recipes must be typed and organized with an introduction on the ingredients and preparation. 

Travel during class time is strictly prohibited.
