Hospitality, Culinary Arts and Meal Science


The meal is a human social phenomenon, and as such one of the most essential in life. With research across disciplines, our quest is not limited to hard knowledge.

We seek to gain a social and cultural understanding of the significance of eating, taste, staff attitudes and management within the hospitality and public sectors from a sustainability perspective. An interdisciplinary field, culinary arts and meal science has collaborations within the humanities as well as within both social and natural sciences, integrated with an understanding of the practical craft and aesthetics that goes into the meal.
