Culture Night: ‘Milk: the Most Ancient Processed Food’

18 Dec 2019
Professor Alan Kelly

On Culture Night, 20 September, Professor Alan Kelly, School of Food and Nutritional Sciences, gave an interactive public talk at UCC on ‘Milk: the most ancient processed food.’

Participants got hands-on experience of making dairy products such as butter and cheese, while exploring their scientific basis, and debating and challenging concepts around what the processing of food really means today. The talk was inspired by Alan’s research for his recent book Molecules, Microbes and Meals: the Surprising Science of Food (Oxford University Press), which is written in a light and engaging style, and is illustrated with images illustrating the inner and outer beauty of food.
