Finally excited to announce the HILS Cooking Challenge, an event that celebrates microbes, community, and food at Harvard.
Funded by Harvard Integrated Life Sciences (HILS), some friends and I are organizing a cooking-science competition between different HILS PhD programs at Harvard. The theme this year is microbiology, meaning that participants will be challenged to incorporate microbially produced ingredients as they create their concoctions. It’s happening on October 23rd — see below for more details. My co-organizers are Constantin Giurgiu (G2 in Chemistry), Alec Walker (G2 Immunology), Alexa Jackson (G2 ChemBio), Sam Carlson (G2 MCO).
