News from France and from the US

Dear all,
I am happy to tell you that we had our Nantes seminar on Monday.

And soon :
Hello all,
We have a handful of seats left for this afternoon's Experimental Cuisine Collective meeting. It's too late to RSVP through Eventbrite, so come directly to the building if you are able to make it. As a reminder, the meeting will take place today, Wednesday, October 23, from 4 to 6 p.m. in the Chemistry Department at NYU, room 1003 (31 Washington Place, between Washington Square Park and Greene Street). You will need a photo ID to enter the building.    
As part of our ongoing series on the science of agriculture, Jack Algiere, the four seasons farm director at the Stone Barns Center for Food & Agriculture, will offer an overview of the operational community at Stone Barns and how the compost systems there interconnect from landscape, livestock, field crops, greenhouse, restaurant and public visitation. Jack oversees the cultivation of over 200 varieties of produce year-round on 6.5 acres of outdoor fields and gardens and in a 22,000 square-foot minimally heated greenhouse as well as the Center's extensive landscape and compost operations. He experiments continually with innovative growing methods and seed varieties and is integrally involved in training beginning farmers.
All my best,


Anne E. McBride
Director, Experimental Cuisine Collective 

The Experimental Cuisine Collective is a working group that assembles scholars, scientists, chefs, writers, journalists, performance artists, and food enthusiasts. We launched in April 2007, as a result of the collaboration of Kent Kirshenbaum of the chemistry department and Amy Bentley of the nutrition, food studies, and public health department at New York University with Chef Will Goldfarb of WillPowder. Our overall aim is to develop a broad-based and rigorous academic approach that employs techniques and approaches from both the humanities and sciences to examine the properties, boundaries, and conventions of food.
