Everything you want to know about Kitchen Science
If you're a chef, you'll like it... if you're a scientist, you'll like it... if you're a curious person, you'll like it... if you're a food chemist or have done and enjoyed any food chemistry course, you'll LOVE it! I blame the latter fact as to why I took to this title so much. I really enjoyed this title and everything about it, it had a little biology, some biochemistry and a whole lot of chemistry. The bonus in this was the reference material (recipe guide).
The narration of the title was done well enough, not extraordinary but I do think that to narrate anything such as this it would be hard to truly blow me away. It was done very well though, enough to hold your attention for the entire title itself. The narrator didn't droll on and on, but engaged you well enough to keep you interested throughout the title.
The knowledge gained through listening this entire title was well received. As someone who did Food Chem in college I do remember a lot of the concepts that were mentioned. It also was not done in a way that requires any previous knowledge regarding chemistry or any basic science to really understand. All you need is an open mind and you should be able to follow pretty well. I thought the cook book that was provided would have been a bit more relevant other than giving you some treats to make but it was a nice addition. If you actually intend to be a Chef, be in the Food Industry or do any sort of Food Chemistry course I would HIGHLY recommend this book because it provides some very useful information in a understanding form.

It was actually pretty interesting
If you ever wondered about how your microwave works or what the best way to liberate juice from a lemon check this book out. I learned way more that I planned on about what is in my kitchen and how I've been using it wrong. :)
