Learn to "read a french fry," find out why you can't eat an ice cream cone in a convertible, discover if you can cook a burger over a candelabra, and see the secret formula to boil the perfect egg. Cooking is part craft, and part science with just a pinch of magic added for flavor. Knowing some of the science can make a cook into a better artist. Food and Fire teaches the basics of heat and temperature (no, they're NOT the same), convection, conduction, and radiation. Learn the science behind baking, roasting, frying and boiling.
