It’s easy to overlook the miraculous transformations that happen to food in our “home laboratories” – our kitchens. In this show, we explore a host of tasty questions: What changes when you fry an egg, boil a potato, or sear a steak? How are mayonnaise and whipped cream alike? Why doesn’t honey spoil, and how can you keep other foods safe? Why do ham and bacon look different from pork? Why are pretzels brown?
Presented by Professor Paul Lyman, Department of Physics.
Fun and free for the family.
