Synopsis

Do Try This at Home: Cook It! by Punk Science

Cooking is science and this book is packed with exciting recipes for scientists of all ages. Make cup cakes and find out why beating the eggs and using baking powder makes them rise. Cook a Bolognese sauce and discover why onions make you cry and what happens to the molecules in the meat when you cook it. Reveal the insulating power of meringue when you make a Baked Alaska - the oven's hot but the ice cream stays frozen. You will also find out about the amazing scientific powers of ingredients such as gelatine, yeast and eggs. There are sections about the history of food, preserving and packaging, growing food, and vitamins and minerals. And if that wasn't enough, we have looked at really healthy ways of preparing the food too. Yum!

About the Author

Punk Science is the Science Museum’s very own comedy team. Using experiments, live demonstrations and music they put the fun into the fundamental theories of science. Punk Science are an eclectic mix made up of comedian and journalist Jon Milton, who might well be the only person from Romford to have ever been interested in the general theory of relativity, then there’s all drumming, all American and all round entertainer Brad Gross, and last but by no means least, actor, guitarist and international jet setter Dan Carter-Hope.
