Prochain séminaire à New York

Chers Amis

voici ce que je suis heureux de vous transmettre :

Hello all,
 
 
All of us at the Experimental Cuisine Collective hope that you were not too personally affected by last week's hurricane. Please let us know if you are organizing relief events and/or need volunteers---we'll post information on our website. 
  
Our November ECC meeting will take place on Monday, November 19, 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.    

In this session, Francisco Migoya will be officially presenting The Elements of Dessert, his latest, just released cookbook. He will discuss his motivation for writing this book, the process itself, the book's content, design, and format, and go through recipes that are particularly necessary to dissect and discuss. To understand these principles through practice, we will conclude by sampling some of the chocolates featured in the book!

Francisco J. Migoya is an associate professor at the Culinary Institute of America, in Hyde Park, New York. He is the author of Frozen DessertsThe Modern Café, nominated for a James Beard Award, and The Elements of Dessert. He was named one of the Top Ten Pastry Chefs in America in 2011 by Dessert Professional. Before the CIA, Francisco was the executive pastry chef for The French Laundry, Bouchon Bakery, and Bouchon Bistro. 

Please RSVP at ecc112012.eventbrite.com. A link is also posted on our website. If you RSVP and can no longer make it, please let me know right away so that your seat can be released---thank you! 

All my best,


Anne

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.
