New Undergraduate Course Supplement 2022

FRIT 37.10 French Gastronomy: Culture et Cuisine

For over 300 years the world has associated France with the gastronomic arts.  In 2010 the “gastronomic meal of the French”was inscribed by UNESCO on its list of the “Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity.”  In this interdisciplinary course, we will examine the culture of French gastronomy from its origins to the present.  We will use the case of France to illustrate how a country’s culinary culture illuminates its history, politics, economics, and “mentalités,” thought patterns.  There are no prerequisites for the course; students taking the course to count towards their French major/minor should only enroll if they have already received credit for FREN 008.

The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
