Director, Experimental Cuisine Collective
ABOUT THE 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.
