  • How to Change the World Through Cooking

    The “Edible Science” course has recently began its second run at ITMO University, authored by chef, TV host and entrepreneur Ilya Litvyak. Even though the course is already in progress, new students can join at any time. Each Sunday, they come together to participate in the chef’s culinary experiments and learn a few tricks for themselves. However, Litvyak doesn’t limit the course to just cooking: at the workshops, the chef explains why it is necessary to approach food from a scientific point of view, what skills are crucial and how to learn to improve one’s engineering way of thinking. The students are in for some discoveries: not many are aware that these days, scientists and world-class chefs are working together on such matters as nutrition for cancer patients or age-appropriate food.
