The Culinology® program will be administered by combing courses that are offered in Culinary arts at Mississippi University for Women and courses that are offered in Food Science at Mississippi State University. Culinology® is an approach to food that blends culinary arts and food technology. Through the blending of these two disciplines, culinology seeks to make food taste better – whether purchased in a supermarket or eaten in a restaurant. Culinology® also seeks to make food more consistent and safer. A primary application of culinology is to logically translate sophisticated food concepts, such as those applied in fine dining or in a traditional ethnic cuisine, to items that are on the menus of chain restaurants or those processed for retail sale. As such chain-menu or retail product development is only possible through the astute combination of culinary arts and food science and technology.
