Ever wondered how bubble tea is made? What's the difference between good old sugar and the perfect caramel you find on a crème brûlée? What is Sous Vide cooking?

Come along to our workshop to find out!

Dive into the culinary arts and explore how science can improve cooking. This is very different from using cooking to demonstrate scientific principles!

We'll explain how stuff works, do some demonstrations, then let you have a go at it.

  • learn how science can be applied in the kitchen to achieve desired flavours and textures
  • discover techniques used by chefs to create innovative dishes. Learn how to use them in home cooking
  • try something truly creative. Gain a new appreciation for food science, and possibly a new hobby!
