This is nice: Food & Wine shouts out tons of Boston-area schools for being particularly hospitable to people who love food. Unlike its students, Harvard's a no-brainer: They're cited as a primo place for "gastronauts in training," thanks to its Science & Cooking chef lecture series. BC makes the list not because of its proximity to Eagle's Deli but because of its chocolate bar, "which offers just about every chocolate confection imaginable: chocolate cinnamon rolls, chocolate croissants, chocolate chip muffins, chocolate sundaes, and multiple kinds of chocolate cake."
Crossing the river, BU's "Master of Liberal Arts in Gastronomy approaches food studies through historical texts" and cameos by people like Ming Tsai and Jacques Pepin. And Babson is home to entrepreneur-in-residence Andrew Zimmern. Not too shabby. Just one thing: What about MIT's remarkable innovation in the field of hummus?
