Science and food
So, are you done unwrapping your holiday presents? Because here's one idea that escaped my attention. Not a regular cookbook, but the Hungry Scientist Handbook. Okay, well, that's a link to the website, but seems to be chock full of ideas for kitchen fun. The Amazon reviews seem a little disappointed in the science content, but I already like the idea of fizzy fruit (here demonstrated from NPR).
Addendum: guess what is the ingredient of year? Bacon! More yummy links behind that link. Bacon certainly featured greatly in my recent sojourn to the Western Casa McBardo, and boy, am I glad. Two new batches are incubating, and should be born in a couple of weeks' time. Sadly, I'll not be there to taste of it.
