Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0393058697, Hardcover)
The scientist in the kitchen tells us more about what makes our foods tick.This sequel to the best-selling What Einstein Told His Cook continues Bob Wolke's investigations into the science behind our foods—from the farm or factory to the market, and through the kitchen to the table. In response to ongoing questions from the readers of his nationally syndicated Washington Post column, "Food 101," Wolke continues to debunk misconceptions with reliable, commonsense answers. He has also added a new feature for curious cooks and budding scientists, "Sidebar Science," which details the chemical processes that underlie food and cooking. In the same plain language that made the first book a hit with both techies and foodies, Wolke combines the authority, clarity, and wit of a renowned research scientist, writer, and teacher. All those who cook, or for that matter go to the market and eat, will become wiser consumers, better cooks, and happier gastronomes for understanding their food. 20 illustrations

"Using the same plain language that made the first What Einstein Told His Cook a hit, Robert L. Wolke combines the authority of a scientist with the clarity and wit of a great teacher. In this sequel, he continues to bridge the gap between the chemist and the cook, not to mention folks who are just plain curious about the world around them." "For Wolke, supermarkets are combat zones to be conquered through knowledge. By doing actual experiments to uncover the facts, he has debunked numerous old wives' tales and modern misconceptions. He can therefore dispense liberal doses of straight-from-the-shoulder advice to any perplexed consumer." "Included are more than 35 recipes by cooking teacher and food writer Marlene Parrish, designed to put all this knowledge into practical and appetizing use."--BOOK JACKET.
