Study Abroad Ecuador: Cultural Immersion through Food

Flag_of_Ecuador_svgThe core of this unique experience is a two-week trip to Ecuador that explores food, culture, and agriculture across several geographical and ecological regions in Ecuador.

“Tell me what you eat, and I’ll tell you who you are,” wrote renowned gastronome Jean Anthelme Brillat-Savarin in 1825. The type of food we eat, and ultimately how we prepare it and share it reflects who we are and where we come from. Therefore, the social context for food is very important and significant.

While in Ecuador, we will visit cultural and historical sites, universities, and most importantly we will learn about local food, cook with the locals and experience their “food culture”. Furthermore, we will explore the driving force behind what we eat across several cultural boundaries.

The framework for this highimpact experience is a special study course offered during first summer session. Preparation for the trip occurs during spring semester.
