General description

If you were out on the streets asking people, what's science? You would probably hear stuff like: Einstein? Laboratory? Intelligence? … Science fiction???

But how many of them would answer: FOOD?!!!

We can assure you that after one week in the crazy town of Louvain-la-Neuve you are going to be part of the unique handful of people that is going to give this peculiar answer!

How come? If cooking is an art, knowing your ingredients is a science! Throughout this course you will embark on a journey that will take you from agro-bio-diversity to the development of healthy food items. You are going to find out things you would have never thought of before and you will definitely think twice whenever you sit in front of your meal.

“One cannot think well, love well, sleep well, if one has not dined well.” - Virginia Woolf
