Chemistry faculty from Butler University will lead the group in a morning seminar in Paris where the process and science of making beer, wine, cheese, and chocolate will be reviewed and discussed (at a level appropriate for both scientists and non-scientists). Following the science primer, the group will visit breweries, wineries, cheese production sites, and chocolatiers to gain a better understanding and appreciation of these specialized food products. Significant events have been planned during these programmed visits such as workshops, tours, and tastings where our group will have significant interactions with experts who can comment on culture, history, and science. Food and culture will also be highlighted by our local guides. Learn more by downloding the PDF or visiting the College Study Tours website.
