Self-described “food innovator” Dave Arnold will share his tales of combining food and technology to create new, innovative products with UW-Madison students on campus Wednesday as part of the Distinguished Lecture Series.
Arnold, the founder of the Museum of Food and Drink in New York and a renowned food journalist, first found his passion for mixing his skills in the kitchen with science after meeting molecular gastronomy pioneer Chef Wylie Dufresne.
Recipes of Arnold’s creation have landed him airtime on television shows such as “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon,” “The Today Show” and “The Ellen Degeneres Show,” according to Arnold’s website.
The lecture, which is put on by the Wisconsin Union Directorate in partnership with Madison Magazine and the Underground Food Collective, will take place in Memorial Union’s Shannon Hall at 7:30 p.m. The event is free and open to the public, and tickets are not required.
