THE KITCHEN AS LABORATORY - Reflections On The Science of Food and Cooking
ingesting is a multisensory revel in, but cooks and scientists have only recently started to deconstruct food's additives, placing the degree for science-primarily based cooking. in this global collaboration of essays, cooks and scientists enhance culinary knowledge via testing hypotheses rooted within the physical and chemical houses of meals. the use of traditional and cutting-edge  tools, components, and techniques, those pioneers create, and from time to time revamp, dishes that reply to specific desires and serve up an unique encounter with gastronomic practice. 
From the seemingly mundane to the meals top notch―from grilled cheese sandwiches, pizzas, and gentle-boiled eggs to Turkish ice cream, sugar glasses, and jellified beads―the essays in the Kitchen as Laboratory cowl a number creations and their history and lifestyle. They remember the importance of an eater's historical past and eating environment and the significance of a chef's strategies, as well as the strategies used to create a great variety of meals and dishes. This series will delight professionals and amateurs alike, specially as eating places depend more on technological know-how-primarily based cooking and recreational chefs increasingly more explore the physics and chemistry in the back of their artwork. participants cease every essay with their non-public thoughts on food, cooking, and science, imparting uncommon insight into a expert's passion for playing with food.


Behind today's celebrity chefs and starred restaurants is a mostly unsung army of dedicated food and science lovers working to uncover the scientific principles that make our modern gastronomical marvels possible. In offering thirty-three highly readable and often amusing essays by warriors in this multinational kitchen army, the editors of this anthology have accomplished the great service of filling a much-needed gap in the public's understanding and appreciation of twenty-first-century culinary 'magic.' Where else can one have fun pondering the acoustics of crunchy foods or the texture of an ice cream that stretches like a rubber band? (Robert Wolke, former Washington Post food columnist and author of What Einstein Told His Cook: Kitchen Science Explained
The editors of The Kitchen as Laboratory provide not just intimate and fascinating anecdotal insights but also the scientific principles that inspired them. They have created a new altar for chefs and gourmands to worship: the poetry of science. (Will Goldfarb, creator of Willpowder, Experimental Cuisine Collective) 
The Kitchen as Laboratory provides good perspective on the scientific approach to cooking while reflecting the interests and passions of each essay's author. Readers are likely to come away with a lot of new ideas to use in the kitchen, as well as some recognition of the breadth of contemporary applications of science in the kitchen. (Peter Barham, author ofThe Science of Cooking
The Kitchen as Laboratory is not only an in-depth study of many areas of food science, but also an entertaining read. For someone like me, who relishes understanding more about cooking from the inside out, it's heartening to see this area of literature expanded. (Chef Wylie Dufresne, wd~50) 
Nothing is more difficult to master in the world than science itself. The Kitchen as Laboratorycreates a beautiful synergy between food and science while amazingly representing difficult concepts in colloquial language. It is a powerful book. (Chef José Andrés, James Beard Foundation's Outstanding Chef) 
Cesar Vega, Job Ubbink, and Erik van der Linden have assembled a complete document that seamlessly bridges the inherent connection of the science of cooking and the art of cooking.
