Chefology is a club dedicated to the students who have a heightened passion for food past just nourishment.  We strive to gain a deeper knowledge of cuisine and culture through product sourcing, site visits, cooking techniques, and demonstrations via industry professionals.  As a result, we interact with unique and interesting ingredients and processes, and learn new skills that inevitably hone our appreciation for the various foodstuffs of not only our native towns and states, but the world as well!  Chefology is a platform for development and experimentation in the kitchen, experiencing food like never before and most importantly, meeting new and lasting friends!
