Slow Food Education

University of Gastronomic Sciences
The University of Gastronomic Sciences, founded in 2004 by the international non-profit Slow Food in cooperation with the Italian regions of Piedmont, the school’s innovative approach is to create a new understanding of gastronomy, linking the act of eating with the act of producing, along with all the phases in between. Four programs follow a multidisciplinary learning model, merging science with humanities, sensory training with communications, and classroom study with field seminars (including travel to five continents). Graduates move on to positions in food production and transformation, tourism, retail, consumer education, non-profits and NGOs, communication and journalism, and academia.
