Culinary Genomics: The New Revolution in Nutrition, Medicine and The Kitchen


This session will unveil the new food and culinary conversation, providing insight into, and understanding of, the concept food as medicine.

Culinary Genomics unites the science of nutrigenomics (how food interacts with genes) with the kitchen, creating new and exciting opportunities for chefs and food experts in restaurants, institutions, and the home kitchen. This session will unveil the new food and culinary conversation, providing insight into, and understanding of, the concept “food as medicine.”  Presenters Roberta Kline, MD and Amanda Archibald, RD will highlight the role of genes in health. More importantly, they will provide examples of how specific ingredients and culinary preparation can deeply impact health outcomes through their biological dialog with genes. This revolution, uniting science and the kitchen, is perhaps the biggest opportunity in food in decades.
