This course combines historical, anthropological, sociological and, of course, gastronomical perspectives to examine the relationship between food and culture in Spain. A historical timeline will be used as a reference to follow the evolution of Spanish cuisine from Spain's first settlers to present day. The different cultures and civilizations that have formed part of Spain's history - Romans, Visigoths, Arabs, Jews and Pre-Columbian Americans - have contributed a variety of foods and spices that today form part of the rich and unique Spanish cuisine.

Through a variety of readings, study excursions and tasting sessions this course offers you the opportunity to go beyond the traditional classroom experience to explore the five senses of sight, hearing, taste, smell and touch, essential to fully comprehend and appreciate Spanish cuisine.
