Joan Christy Lecture Series Presents Chef Educator Danny Corsun
Falk College and its Department of Nutrition and Food Studies will host chef educator Danny Corsun for “Edible empowerment: Using food as an experiential teaching vehicle,” as part of the Joan Christy Lecture Series.
Corsun, a chef educator since 2000, will deliver remarks from 3:30-5 p.m. March 6, in 335 White Hall, Falk College.
As a classroom educator, Corsun created a program that taught academic disciplines through experientially engaging cooking classes. This program created a fun classroom environment for students—and resulted in better cognitive processing and retention of the curriculum.
In 2005, Corsun retired from that one classroom to teach in thousands of classrooms, creating Culinary Kids Academy to provide math, science, history, and nutrition curriculum to youth across Los Angeles.
In 2009, he expanded the company by adding a faith-based division. Culinary Judaics Academy uses both in-person programming and its “masterclass for Jewish learning through cooking” digital platform to deliver dynamic, engaging, and experiential content and curriculum to Jewish people of all ages, affiliations, and levels of practice. Since 2005, Culinary Judaics Academy’s workshops have reached over 50,000 students worldwide.
The Joan Christy Lecture Series is made possible by The Christy Food and Culture Fund, established in 2005 through the generosity of nutrition alumna Joan Christy ’78, G’81 to provide support for a lecture series in the nutrition program at the University.
