GIVING BACK — DeLand chef Hari Pulapaka, through his organization Global Cooking School, operates small cooking demonstrations and tastings as well as philanthropic events where he gives back to the community. Pulapaka has also published two books, the most recent of which, titled Dreaming in Spice: A Sinfully Vegetarian Odyssey, is available for purchase on his website.

Stetson University associate professor of mathematics and local chef Hari Pulapaka, Ph.D., was inducted into the prestigious American Academy of Chefs. 

Induction into the American Academy of Chefs represents the highest standards of professionalism in the American Culinary Federation, society and industry.

For the past 15 years, Pulapaka has been a nationally respected advocate of sustainable food systems in his roles as a chef, entrepreneur and author, and he has been at the forefront of issues such as reducing food waste, developing diets for planetary and human health, reducing hunger, promoting sustainable seafood, and supporting traceability and transparency. 

During Stetson’s fall 2023 semester, in addition to teaching mathematics courses across the curriculum, Pulapaka will return to teaching food-related courses, including the one-of-a-kind, first-year seminar titled “Tasty No Waste Cooking & Eating.”
