Kitchen Chemistry

“Kitchen Chemistry” is a live stage presentation about recognizing and exploring the science that we practice every day in our very own homes. We take a look at the chemistry behind a seemingly simple bowl of spaghetti – from boiling water, to the behavior of starches and lubricants both on the macro- and nanoscale, to the nanosensors that determine our perception of taste and smell; how cooking is a complex chemistry, and how we are complex in the ways we experience our food. The presentation consists of multiple demonstrations, many including audience participation.
