College years are a great time to start LONG-LASTING cooking skills!
I feel very fortunate to be able to teach about the physics of food and cooking as part of my faculty position at Appalachian State University. Here is a link to a podcast about my first year seminar Know Watts Cooking class. The students are fantastic and always provide great input to the subject! I think I learn as much from them as they do from me!!
I believe that these college years are a FANTASTIC time to start long-lasting cooking skills that will lead to a sustainable food future. It's often the first time a person has their own kitchen and gets to decide if they are going actually USE that room or depend on a processed food system for their "nutritional" needs.
