Taught by Jonathan Soma

Soma was born in the South, is what someone from the North would say. He co-founded the Brainery, is the sciencey half of Masters of Social Gastronomy, and plans on getting married to Waffle House. In his more droll moments he is a tragic sellout to higher ed as a professor of data journalism at Columbia University's journalism school.

Gin! Let's learn the history behind the most juniper-berried of liquors, and taste a ton to boot.

How is gin made, and what's with all the spices? Let's take that one step further, too, and learn how to brew up some ramshackle gin from the comfort of your own kitchen.

Like wines, gin is a balance of sweetness and body - learn the difference between London Dry, Genever and Plymouth.

Are different gins good for different things? They don't exist in a vacuum - you'll find it in, say, a martini or a gin and tonic, where the unique blends of each brand match up with the other ingredients to create something new.

In case it's not obvious, you need to be 21 to take this class.
