UGA students are back from a very successful Maymester 2017 study abroad trip to the British Isles. The group was led by associate professor in foods and nutrition Jamie Cooper.
Students received course credit in FDNS 3010 Special Problems in Foods and Nutrition and FDNS 4630/6630 Cultural Aspects of Foods and Nutrition while traveling to England, Scotland, Ireland and Northern Ireland.
"Students had a great time exploring and learning first-hand about the culture and food environment of the British Isles,” Cooper said.
The trip included:
In addition, the students participated in several food/academic excursions, including a gourmet cooking class, two farm visits (one on improving sustainability in agriculture and one that included a sausage making demonstration), trips to the Borough Market, Smithfield Meat Market, High Tea in London, cheese making demonstration, bread making demonstration, pork pie demonstration, as well as visits to two breweries, a whiskey distillery, and two farmers markets.
