The Concordia Food Studies Group, A PhD in Gastronomy, and Free Food Films

Posted by Amie / November 4, 2011

vanishing of the bees at the Concordia food studies group film seriesStuff I didn't know:
1. You can get a PhD in Gastronomy at Concordia
2. Corn is involved in almost every item at the grocery store, as an ingredient, as packaging, and for transportation
3. Slurping spaghetti is a-okay if you're North American, but taboo if you're Japanese. Slurping ramen, however, is encouraged

Maybe some of these are more relevant to the average joe than others (corn...and noodles) but all have to do with the free film series put on by Concordia Food Studies Working Group. they're all important to David Szanto, the person in charge of the selection of food-related films shown at the monthly series and a managing member of the Food Studies Working Group. His background? A graduate certificate in Digital Technologies in Design where he studied people's perceptions and sensorial reactions to food, and he's currently a PhD student in gastronomy. When not researching hes teaching an undergraduate course on food and culture at the university, and being interviewed by Midnight Poutine.

So we talked about two upcoming films being shown at Concordia as part of the series, as well as how to get university credit to talk about food:

"The Vanishing of the Bees" on November 10th

How do you like them apples?

and "Tampopo" on December 1st

The film "The Vanishing of the Bees" is being shown at the EV Building at Concordia, 1515 Ste-Catherine West on Thursday, November 10th at 6:30pm in room 6.720. "Tampopo" being shown on December 1st at 6:30pm. Same time, same place.

And if you too want to have a degree in food, here's some info on one way to make that happen.

In most homes, a classily designed LCD TV has become an urgent part
in every entertainment room. Generally, two types of storage facilities available for you,
which are self storage and mobile storage. Our company knows for installing and using the best parts of auto.
* Storage facilities can be availed for short-term or long-term needs.
The rides include Hoodoo Run, Woo - Hoo Falls, Stingray Falls, Kiwi Curl, and more.

Large open space in the back of the truck leaves
plenty of space for objects to fall out of place and get beat against each other,
but there's a simple solution to this problem, and it is to set the cargo bar of bars around the loading
area of the vehicle in order to hold items in place.
Because of the low cost mode of transportation but
more time consuming, there is always a dilemma in picking
the right choice. As in every industry, not all vehicle wrap businesses are created equal.
The World is a small place now and they can keep in touch with old friends should they choose to.
For example, a pharmaceutical manufacturer may invest in new
1,000-litre capacity reactor vessels, a property
company purchases a 500-vehicle capacity city-centre car park, and a 'multiplex' cinema is built with 10
screens and a total capacity of 2,500 seats.

The products are formulated using top quality natural ingredients, they're full of essential macro and
micro nutrients in order to meet the core
nutritional and weight-loss requirements of all individuals.
Make the low-calorie options nearly all what you eat but save somewhat space for a few treats.
So, a couple pounds loss regime may work wonders for an individual instead of so excellent for one more person.

Divorce,drama, loss of a job, health conditions about
yourself or someone you value - this stuff happen.

doesn't value your not enough planning.
