Course Description:

Have you ever wondered why we cook certain foods? Do you understand why specific ingredients and procedures are used when preparing your favorite recipes? Do you want to learn more about the foods that we eat? Through hands-on activities done in your own kitchen, we will explore the science of cooking using common household items and ingredients. We will investigate food preparation and cooking techniques such as kneading bread and browning meat. We will also consider the underlying biological, chemical, and physical concepts behind such methods, as we experiment with the cooking of foods in a delicious way.
