We would like to tell you about the new IE Gastronomy website, an initiative centered on the principles of “Management, Nutrition & Welfare”. The idea behind IE Gastronomy is to share gastronomic experiences and the benefits they bring at both, a personal and professional level, including our students, our more than 50,000 alumni, and everyone with links to our key sponsor´s and other collaborating companies. This integrated knowledge of gastronomy provides a differential value and will bring a healthy experience that complements the academic learning process. You can access the full content of this initiative by registering with your IE email account (please note: you will need to verify your account through a link that will be sent to your email in order to ensure the authenticity of the accountholder).
IE Gastronomy has also developed a series of modules led by renowned professionals – cardiologists like Valentín Fuster, world famous chefs like Ferran Adrià, or nutritionists like Gregorio Varela or José María Ordovás. These modules will include:
– Global vision of gastronomy
– Gastronomy and health
– The impact of gastronomy on economic and tourism sectors
– Sociology and culture
– The importance of education in the field of gastronomy
– Gastronomy in the digital era.
The IE Gastronomy website features sections centered around the three basic pillars of food – eating, eating healthily, and knowing how to eat – coupled with a section on current trends and related news items, events, recommended publications, and a review of press activity in the sector, from Spain and worldwide. It also offers a complete guide of restaurants and a section dedicated to guest firms in the form of interviews, reflections, and videos, like Rafael Ansón’s, “Gastronomic Minute”.
The challenge of this project, headed by Rafael Anson, President of Spain’s Royal Academy for Gastronomy, is to integrate knowledge of food and nutrition into the educational system, coupled with taste apprenticeship, the overarching aim is to improve the quality of life of the IE community, its staff, students, alumni, and partnering firms.
