ISN Program Chair
Chef & Foods Lab Coordinator
Department of Dietetics & Human Nutrition
University of Kentucky
Bob Perry has been a chef in a wide variety of restaurant operations for over 30 years and is a past board member of Chefs Collaborative and many other sustainable agriculture organizations. He now conducts food system research and teaches “Quantity Food Production” and “CSA Gastronomy: Our Local Food System” at the University of Kentucky. He has scripted local food segments and appeared on the KET program “KY Life” many times. He also wrote and hosted the weekly Farmers Market Report on University of Kentucky’s NPR station WUKY. Perry’s hope is that examining high umami foods through the lens of neurogastronomy will help with appetites of cancer patients undergoing treatment.
