DINNER DATE: The Science of Food at Le Cordon Bleu


Calling all foodies and science geeks: Carleton University is hosting a May 11 food event called The Four Courses of Chemistry, at the luxurious Le Cordon Bleu (453 Laurier Ave.). The four-course dinner will feature an examination of the chemistry of food – by way of molecules.

Dr. Malcolm Butler, dean of the faculty of science, will be on hand — along with graduate students — to celebrate the International Year of Chemistry.

Guests will be treated to a molecular gastronomy presentation before the meal and will also learn about the chemistry of wine and chocolate, as well as getting an update on current research projects in Carleton’s Food Science program. But the real treat is the four-course meal.

The demonstration and reception starts at 6 p.m., followed by a dinner featuring graduate student discussions at 7 p.m. Tickets are $99 and can be purchased at alumni.carleton.ca/events or by calling 1-866-287-7683. For more information, visit alumni.carleton.ca.
