Abstract
When you step into your kitchen to cook or bake, you put science to work. Physics and chemistry come into play each time you simmer, steam, bake, freeze, boil, puree, saute, or ferment food. Knowing something about the physics, biology, and chemistry of food will give you the basic tools to be the best chef you can be. Bodacious Bubble Tea, Flavorful Fruit Leather, Super Spring Rolls, Mouthwatering Meatballs...divided by course, each lab presents a step-by-step recipe for a delicious drink, snack, sauce, main dish, dessert, or decoration. The Science Behind the Food section included with each recipe will help you understand the science concepts and nutrition behind the ingredients. Have fun learning about: bacteria and the chemical process of fermentation by making your own pickled vegetables; emulsion as you create your own vinaigrette; how trapped water vapor causes a popover to inflate as you make your own; crystals by making your own ice cream. Mix and match the recipes to pair pasta with your favorite sauce, make ice cream to serve in homemade chocolate bowls, or whip up the perfect frosting for your cake. There are plenty of fun, edible decorations included for the art lovers in the crowd. Before long, you'll have the confidence to throw together a feast, bake and decorate show-worthy cakes, or use what you've learned to create your own recipes. For those with food allergies, all recipes are nut-free and other allergens are clearly labeled throughout. Let's get cooking--and learning!
