Abstract:

The interest surrounding food has grown considerably in the 21st century, with an ever increasing awareness on culinary science and molecular gastronomy. The modern chef has taken on a new image: utilizing centrifuges, vacuum sealers, and homogenizers in addition to the simple pot and pan. What effect does this have on the geography of cuisine, and how does food chemistry play a role in the understanding of character, gender, and culture in the space of the contemporary kitchen? Through a culmination of culinary labs, readings, and videos, I am exploring the realm of food science and considering the questions, benefits, and consequences that may arise.
