Cookbook: The Science Chef



The Science Chef
Joan D'Amico and Karen Eich Drummong



Note:   Why does popcorn pop?    Why do onions make you cry?   Why does toast brown?   What makes an apple turn brown?        This is all KITCHEN SCIENCE!!    This has been a fun book for the boys to do on rainy days.     I think this would be a really fun summer science camp!



With the Science Chef you'll learn loads of basic science by doing fun, easy-to-perform cooking projects. The best part is you get to eat your results! You'll discover the answers to such scientific questions such as, why do onions make you cry? How does yeast make bread rise? What makes popcorn pop, whipped cream frothy, and angel food cake fluffy? These are kid-tested recipes for everything from cinnamon toast and baked potatoes to stromboli pizzoli and monkey bread.
