Cooking for Geeks

Back to school edition here, revving up the brain with some quick, easy, and edible science lessons.

From last week’s Science Friday, New Frontier For Geeks: The Kitchen.

In Cooking for Geeks: Real Science, Great Hacks, and Good Food, software engineer Jeff Potter discusses using the hacker mindset in the kitchen, from cooking salmon in the dishwasher to a warranty-voiding experiment on his oven to get the scorching temperatures necessary for perfect pizza crust.

Other Science Friday episodes you might want to revisit:

The basil blight that is threatening our pesto.

Do-it-yourself gardening.

The science of cheese-making.

Chef Wylie Dufresne experiments in his laboratory/kitchen.

The evolution of beer and the science of beer bubbles. (Your eyes don’t always tell you the truth.)
