  • UNISG Study Trip: Thailand | A travel gallery, Andrea Bernardi, study trip tutor writes: On the discovery of the Thai territory through the many cardinal points of the country (Bangkok + Ubon Ratchathani and Trang provinces). At Ubon Ratchathani province we were hosted by the Ban Ta Mui community on the Mekong River where we experienced extraordinary sharing moments, not only about their gastronomic practices and culture but also about human values ​​that in today's society are sometimes discounted.  Then we left for the country’s southwest to the village of Mod Ta Noi in the province of Trang, there we came into contact with the local Muslim fishing community who also shared their values ​​and welcomed us by letting us try crab and cuttlefish fishing at an evocative place inside the national park of Chao Mai. The last days we returned to the capital, Bangkok, to understand how the gastronomic and cultural tradition of the country has merged with the different ethnic groups and cultures that have migrated to Thailand over the years. #unisg #unisglife #foodstudies #slowfood #pollenzo #travel #thailand #thaifood #igersthailand #bangkok  Photos by @bernus90
  • Regram @breakfastisgoodforyou shared a thought to us: "Wow - feeling so grateful for my education; we had Marion Nestle as a guest lecturer this week! We covered how to enact national and local food system policy, discussed the complexities of the U.S. Farm Bill and learned about her new book which exposes how food companies fund research to corrupt the scientific understanding and public perception of their products. #UNISG #UNISGlife #foodstudies #slowfood #pollenzo #health
