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 😉
I'm french and Sous Vide doesn't mean Under Vacuum AT ALL. Ugh.
Under Vacuum in french > Sous Aspirateur
What Sous Vide means is > Under Empty Or Under Emptiness
GET 👏🏻 YOUR 👏🏻 TRANSLATIONS 👏🏻 RIGHT 👏🏻
There's a dish in shoukugeki no Souma where someone covers meat in diced onions. I'm wondering if this dish would work in real life since supposedly, the enzymes in the onions are supposed to tenderize the meat...
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.
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.
GUESS WHO'S GONNA GO ON A FRICKEN CITRUS SPREE (I am so excited to try this)
Molecular gastronomy is one of my favorite cuisines I got to learn at culinary school. Unfortunately it's very expensive, not only to study but also to eat it. Most molecular gastronomy restaurants cost up to 14,000 dollars to eat there. But, the food the chefs make are a piece of art... And don't make me get started with the foams and airs. Those things are so cool and odd
The class of drugs that Levitra, Viagra, Stendra, and Cialis belong to are called PDE5 inhibitors. They work by relaxing tight blood vessels, allowing more blood to surge into the penis and cause an erection, says Gregory Bales, M.D., an associate professor of urology at the University of Chicago.
The little pills do the trick for more than two-thirds of men with Viagra protects the heart (ED). They also work for guys who simply need them for a short time to get their “confidence back,” says Michael Eisenberg, M.D., director of male reproductive medicine and surgery at Stanford University.
