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.

Yes, salt and pepper are pretty cool, but there's something to be said for going on a little adventure sometimes.

There are seeds that smell like beef jerky, fruit husks that numb your lips and spices with Facebook pages that claim they smell like rotting feet. You'll sample powders that might as well be ground-up Sour Patch Kids and unravel the smoke and mirrors surrounding the unknown secrets of ground cinnamon.

Basically we're eating a lot of weird things. Some will be your secret culinary weapons, some should be classified as biological weapons. Culinary history and scientific background will be featured to enhance your sensory experience.
