Harvard/edX Course launches again -"Science & Cooking: from Haute Cuisine to Soft Matter Science"

Recommended Posts

I took this course in 2013 and found it immensely interesting and useful. The teachers are engaging, the tutors invaluable, the platform frustrating...ok, so it wasn't perfect, but it was good enough that I'm going again. (Maybe the discussion platform has improved since then.) It's free, although now they invite donations. The class starts June 17.

Thanks, Smithy, for better or for worse I signed up.  I have very much enjoyed the Harvard science and cooking public lectures.

I signed up AND bought the book. Thank you Smithy and nickrey.

Edited because I did not think that either Smithy or nickrey would appreciate being called sweetie! Whew. Glad I caught that.

I just signed up, three weeks late, so I have some catch up. I plan on getting the book as well. This is exciting! Thank you for posting this!
