Staff Writer

The university that brought in David Chang and Ferran Adrià is now bringing its lectures to the online platform; NPR reports that Harvard and MIT have teamed up for edX, an online education platform for science, engineering, law, and business classes. The first Science and Cooking class, however, has just hit the syllabus.

"Science and Cooking," which was a class concept created four years ago, brought in Spanish chef Ferran Adrià for a guest lecture, as well as David Chang. When prefector Pia Sörensen noticed that students were getting turned away, they brought it to edX.

So far, more than 45,000 people have signed up for "Science and Cooking," NPR reports, all to watch chefs create their signature dishes and "dig into science," with lessons from Dave Arnold, Nathan Myhrvold, David Chang, Adrià, and José Andrés.  Watch the promo below.
