Another NPR article, this time a cool profile of a couple who likes to turn their kitchen into a science lab. They give the directions on how to make a cake with LED lights (“it’s safer than candles,” they exclaim), and how to make a martini with dry ice. Very cool party trick. If I remember correctly they also have a book out.
I know that some of the cooking shows are getting a little un-traditional with their preparation with food these days. Cooking really is one of the most elementary sciences.
