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!
