These culinary conferences also provide an introduction to a number of subjects which are covered in greater detail as part of the ‘Hautes Etudes du Goût’ (HEG) university program.  HEG, an intensive program available once a year, is a unique and multidisciplinary course focusing on the many cultural aspects of gastronomy (historic, scientific, sociological and economic).  The program includes lectures, workshops and educational meals led by well known university lecturers and professionals from the world of gastronomy and food.

Chef José BOSSUET MARTINEZChef José BOSSUET MARTINEZ, HEG 2008 graduate, recently published the thesis he wrote towards the completion of his HEG studies. Does taste heritage within a family exist ? If so, how is it passed on ? After attending Natalie Rigal's and Patrick McLeod's lectures during the HEG program, José asked himself what perceptions and sensations were, what the real significance of heritage was, and if it was possible to find, within a family, the same features as far as taste is concerned, just like among the wines produced by the same winery, of which the winemaker would say they share some characteristics, a common identity.
