Does microwaving a lemon make a difference to the amount of juice you get from it? Will using aluminum cooking pans give you Alzheimer''s Disease later in life? What''s the difference between sea salt, table salt and kosher salt? Author Wolke is a chemistry professor emeritus who has investigated food and kitchen science, debunking myths and explaining the science behind cookery, baking, and even cooking appliances. The writing is witty and entertaining, with a great deal of humour, and language for the non-scientist (sidebars designed for techies delve deeper into scientific principles). Includes recipes.
