The Science of Cooking

The Exploratorium in San Francisco has a portion of their web site dedicated to the science of cooking. They have examples of activities and experiments that you can do with different food items (e.g., bread, meat, eggs, pickles, candy, etc.) Just click on the image of whichever food item you wish to learn more about and then look in the “kitchen lab” section of that web page. Within each activity/example, they have a link to a section where you can “share & discuss” your findings. This feature also allows you to get feedback on your results or ask questions to museum staff. Check it out!
