A seminar in NYC

From our American friends :

Hello all,

Before we gather back in New York, however, we are happy to announce a special ECC event: On Monday, September 10, the Experimental Cuisine Collective will go on the road to the Monell Chemical Senses Center in Philadelphia. There, Monell scientists will take part in a panel moderated by ECC co-founder Kent Kirshenbaum, on the topic of Salt, Fat, and Sweet Taste---and Diet.
The panel will start at 3 p.m. and run until 4:30 p.m. Please RSVP by clicking here or the link below, and meet directly at Monell, which is a short walk from Philadelphia's 30th Street Station, at 3500 Market Street.
For more information on the Monell Chemical Senses Center, the world's only independent, non-profit scientific institute dedicated to basic research on taste and smell, visit

All my best,


Anne E. McBride
Director, 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.
