This class is the second in a series that explores physiological systems of the body by way of cuisine and anatomy. The second class will feature the digestive system. We will get the chance to taste the liver, stomach, intestine, and tongue, as prepared by chef Ari Miller, while physician Jonathan Reisman describes how these components work together to keep our bodies healthy.
