Yes, I went to the lecture tonight, featuring Dan Barber.
Although his subject matter is very nerdy, I still find it very interesting and inspiring. I got home late so I’ll have to write up the summary tomorrow.
Other points of interest, youtube videos of this semester’s lectures are being posted – http://seas.harvard.edu/cooking
Harold McGee and Dave Arnold will be doing an additional lecture this Thursday at Jefferson 250, talking about the Science of Cocktails. You must register to get a seat (it is free though). Unfortunately, I was unable to write down the exact URL to register. I only remember that it was via surveymonkey. I will not be attending because I have class that night.
EDIT: Thanks to a reader, here’s the URL to register for a seat for Thursday.
