Overview

Culinology® is the next evolution of culinary arts. It is the blending of the culinary arts and the science of food. Culinologists incorporate their knowledge of taste and texture with their knowledge of food science to produce nutritious, “ready made” foods that closely resemble their “from scratch” originals. Our task is to support our students in their pursuit of the gold standard in Culinology®. We will train graduates for success in food product development and provide guidance and balance from a culinary perspective within a scientific setting. The culinologist is a trained culinarian, dedicated to producing the finest possible combination of ingredients to achieve palate-pleasing results. The culinologist is also a researcher who uses scientific methods and knowledge to insure their creativity can be enjoyed far beyond the confines of their kitchen or laboratory.

Facilities

The Culinology® program is housed in the Individualized Learning Center (IL) on Southwest Minnesota State University’s campus.
