UW-Stout students have an opportunity to gain international experience studying wine and food pairing in Spain. The course is designed to teach students the applied approach in matching wine and food from Spain and the U.S. Students will use flavors, textures, and components present in food and wine as complimenting strategies. There will be an emphasis on menu planning, food preparations, cooking methods, and tasting wines with food in a formal dining room.
UW-Stout and Spanish instructors will jointly teach classes. Highlights will include visiting cultural sites in Barcelona and winery and vineyard tours in Mallorca. Students will have direct contact with winemakers and wine-making techniques. Other highlights of the trip include dining at Spanish restaurants, cultural site visits, and hands-on cooking of food and matching it with wine in a five-course meal. The group will arrive and stay in Barcelona for the first three days. The remainder of the program will be spent in Palma de Mallorca.
