Learn about Science & Cooking with HarvardX




The Harvard Club of Naples cordially invites you to join us as we learn about the science of cooking by attending one of the HarvardX courses together!

The Harvard Club of Naples will be starting an online, home study and group discussion program during the last week in January featuring the Science & Cooking: From Haute Cuisine to Soft Matter Science (physics) course on HarvardX. This is a wonderful course and is one of the most popular courses currently among Harvard students in Cambridge. The course offers both a wonderful "laboratory" component, where students cook food and do experiments related to the cooking, and a classroom component where you learn about the science behind cooking. It is for cooks and non-cooks alike. If you are interested in cooking, please join us in taking this six week online course with a local discussion group that will provide us with the opportunity to talk about what we have learned, compare notes, and share cooking ideas! 

To join the discussion group, please RSVP for this event using the link below.
