Since being accepted to the Italian Gastronomy and Tourism program at the University of Gastronomic Sciences, I have been doing some serious research on the school, the past and current students, and generally the life I should anticipate for myself in the coming year.
I have been absolutely thrilled at the things I have found. I have come across some really informative and interesting blogs from other students that have done the same program that I will soon do. Two examples of these blogs can be found at:
I have been making my best efforts to get into touch with these people before my program starts because I have already picked up on some important pointers on how to properly go about eating on my program. For example, on study trips we can expect to eat a lot of food, but not a lot of fibre, so they suggest we bring fiber supplements to eat along with regular meals to keep our digestive tracts happy. Who would have figured??
Anyway, here is a little more information from the website, An example Itinerary of a study trip we might be doing in Crete, Greece.
And here is a list of the classes I’ll be taking:
Anyway, I will be using Grassroots Gourmet to truly get into the nitty gritty of my studies in the next year and I have a very good feeling that I won’t be short on writing material. I even read one Iambic Cafe’s blog that we get to have an face to face session with Slow-Food founder, Carlo Petrini!! That man changed my LIFE!
Sometimes I have to pinch my arm to make sure all of this is actually happening.
