HUM 242 - World Cultures and Foods: Italy


This course combines a sampling of Northern Italian regional cooking with the history, language, music, culture and traditions of the Italian people, and finally with the impact of Italians and Italian-Americans on the United States. Each class begins with a short exercise in Italian vocabulary and key phrases, then focuses on a prepared meal from one of the many regions of Italy, and the economic and geographic factors influencing the food of that area. The remainder of each class considers many aspects of Italian culture. CU MC (F, Sp)
