9781558618398: A Taste of Molecules: In Search of the Secrets of Flavor (Women Writing Science)

Food meets science, via Proust. We're introduced to flavour even before we're born, and throughout our lives we attach memories, and a sense of home and identity to meals eaten with family and friends. The Danes are so obsessed by the joy of eating together, they even have a word for it--hygge (pronounced who-ga): "That sense of comfort, safety and pleasure that arises from the taste of good food eaten with good company." But how are new flavours created, and how does flavour get into food in the first place? An enchanting personal tale. After a death in the family, the author uses the food of her childhood home in New Mexico as a springboard to travel, taste and discover the food and food science around her home in Belgium and beyond. Through lighthearted chapters such as "The Singing Baguettes" and poignant ones like "Recipes for Remembering" we get a gentle and charming introduction to the world of flavour and sensory science. Science like you've never tasted it. Discover what it's like to dine with  -- and experiment on -- a group of food scientists in a so-called dark restaurant; to taste new apple varieties, only with your eyes; and to watch a young beekeeper turn honey into one of the oldest, most sublime beverages in the world. The book is a lively, enjoyable read to be tasted again and again through the science and memory-inspired recipes in the back. Diane Fresquez lives in Belgium, and for many years was a special correspondent for the Wall Street Journal.

From the Author:

During the research of this book, I was fortunate to meet many enthusiastic food scientists who were good communicators. They also let me taste, smell, see, touch and even listen to the foods and flavors they were working on. They made learning about science as natural and enjoyable as sitting around the dinner table with friends.

About the Author:

Diane Fresquez is an American journalist based in Brussels, Belgium. She was for many years a special correspondent to the Wall Street Journal.

Descripción Feminist Press at The City University of New York, United States, 2013. Paperback. Estado de conservación: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Do men and women experience taste and smell differently? And what happens when you eat a meal completely in the dark? Diane Fresquez, a former Wall Street Journal reporter, spent a year on the trail of obsessive scientists and entrepreneurs who are trying to reveal the secrets of flavor. In this picaresque jaunt, Fresquez seeks out the people working to uncover the truths about taste, including a brewery owner who s developed a banana-flavored beer meant to appeal to young women, and an entrepreneur who won t rest until he develops the perfect mead, the ancient liquor considered the ancestor of all fermented drinks. We meet a young mother and a PhD student whose research shows that what a mother eats can influence the flavor of her breast milk, and a scientist in the Netherlands who does research on flavor and memory at an Orwellian university lab called The Restaurant of the Future. A Taste of Molecules will delight foodies and scientists alike. Nº de ref. de la librería AAC9781558618398
