JAN 024 - French Food and Fashion

Lower division
Full credit
MTuThF, 9:15 AM - 11:50 AM

Paris is often named the capital of food and fashion, but its hegemony has recently come under scrutiny. In this course we will take a virtual trip to Paris and Morocco to discover the dishes and outfits of France and French-speaking Northern Africa. We will delve into culinary and colonial history, cook and taste dishes, learn to pair food and wine, and learn about famous French chefs and couturiers. We will also learn about the history of French fashion since the seventeenth century, about legendary fashion houses and iconic outfits. In addition, the course also provides the basic skills to communicate in French. You will learn applicable skills such as how to introduce yourself, count, shop, make phone calls, ask for directions and order food and drinks. This is a highly interactive class where you can fully immerse yourself in French culture and language.
