Lecture at The Culinary Institute of America Connects Food, Emotion,
and the Senses
Hyde Park, NY – The connection between food studies and culinary practice will
be discussed at a lecture by Dr. Jonathan Deutsch at The Culinary Institute of
America (CIA) on Friday, October 25 at 2 p.m. The public is invited to attend
the talk, part of the college's Dooley Lecture Series, which will be held in
the Renaissance Lounge in Hudson Hall on the CIA's Hyde Park campus.
Dr. Deutsch's presentation, "Food Studies in the Kitchen
Classroom: Connecting Head to Hand to Dollar," will consider
concepts such as
"What is a dish made with love?" and whether making canned spaghetti
meatballs delivers the same message as hand-rolled pasta and
homemade polpette. Studying the many components of food and their
effect on the senses and emotions can help bring success to both the
and personal kitchen.
A 1997 CIA graduate who earned his PhD in food studies from New
York University, Dr. Deutsch is director of the new Center for Hospitality and
Sport Management at Drexel University in Philadelphia. He previously headed the
university's hospitality management, culinary, and food science programs. He
has collaborated on six books, including Gastropolis: Food and New York City (Columbia University Press, 2010) and Culinary Improvisation (Pearson, 2009).
The Dooley Lecture Series brings food industry leaders, as well as experts on international
relations and other interesting luminaries, to The Culinary Institute of America. It is named for Carroll F.
Dooley, the first director of the college's food preparation division in 1946.
His daughter, Patricia Dooley Fortenbaugh, has been
funding the series since its inception in 2002.
