9 Scientific Cooking Techniques

  • Опубликовано: 20 ноя 2016
  • All cooking is science: we use chemistry and physics to steam, fry, bake, or microwave almost all of our meals. However, there are some cooking methods that delve into even deeper and stranger scientific territory.

    Chocolate cake and ketchup, I know it sounds weird but I had some ketchup on a plate at a bday party and it got on my cake. I went to cut off that piece of cake but I smelled it and it smelled very good with the ketchup and the chocolate, so I decided to try it and I ended up dipping the rest of my chocolate cake in the ketchup. It sounds weird but it tastes fantastic surprisingly I still eat chocolate cake with ketchup. Don't knock it until you try it 😉

    It takes a science to make art that can appeal to all 5 senses; also you can do a reverse spherification by mixing your calcium salts into you juice/beverage and the sodium algitate into your water bath instead (so it's reversed lol), some believe it works better but I think its more unstable and tastes funny. Any thoughts?

    Meat glue is very bad bcs it's used to make random chunks of meat look like a steak for example. This means that the former outside of the meat (where most bacteria are) now is inside, where the steak is not heated properly. Yummy.

      Nyan Kitty That doesn't make the meat glue bad as much as the practice itself. Meat glue can be useful.

    So today I discovered that Pectinex Ultra SP-L is commercially available. For like, 9 bucks.v This is the stuff that breaks down pectin structure (like the white bitter strands on oranges) and is usually used commercially so you can have rly sweet juice or those canned lil mandarin oranges.
