The Mediterranean Culinary Academy is the first educational establishment of its kind anywhere in Malta and will be collaborating with Science in the City to deliver a workshop all about gastronomy. The food course will be followed by paired food and drinks, at their interactive bar. This event will be ticketed, more details to be announced.
What would you think if someone offered you an irradiated egg? Or how about a nice juicy apple treated with cold plasma? Sounds appetising? SUIT4FOOD will tell you all about new alternative food technologies that are vital to the future growth of food and nutrition. These have the potential to help produce new foods in more sustainable ways, battle obesity and diabetes and maybe even feed the world. Potential is one thing, fulfilling them is another. The future success of these new food technologies depends on much more than simply the science behind them. Consumer perceptions are the most important thing when it comes to food and nutrition. If consumers are not willing to buy the food, there is no point in producing it.Join us during Science in the City for a discussion (and maybe a tasting ) that is certain to whet your appetite.
SUIT4FOOD (Sustainable Intervention Technologies for controlling food Safety and Stability) is a University of Malta project funded by ERASMUS+ Key Action 2: Strategic Partnerships of the European Union. This project has been funded with support from the European Commission.
