The International Workshops on Molecular Gastronomy

The International Workshops on Molecular Gastronomy are organized since 1992. They contribute to the development of molecular, physical and biological gastronomy in the world.

These workshops are opportunities for the scientists working in molecular gastronomy to exchange about their works. They take place every year, in Paris.
They began in Erice (Sicily), and the two directors were Nicholas Kurti and Hervé This. Guests directors were invited.
The first workshop took place in 1992. And then there were some in 1995, 1998, 2001. After the death of Nicholas Kurti they were organized by Hervé This in Paris.
