SFS 31300 - Farm To Fork
Credit Hours: 1.00. This course will investigate the culinary opportunities of local and seasonal foods and the horticultural demands of producing and marketing them. Dr. Hallett will represent the "farm", giving students a brief overview of the production of local and seasonal foods in Indiana. The "farm" will harvest produce at the student farm and deliver it to the "fork" - Chef Ambarish Lulay - who will work his culinary magic in the teaching kitchens in the HTM department. The focus, from both "sides" of the course will be the importance of niche marketing for farmers and chefs. This course is going to be tasty and fun!
