Science Of The M eal Food is fun to mak e, and it's fun to ea t. Is it fun to ...study? At our Field Study Crew 4371 learned that there is a lot of science that goes into the everyday foods. During an unexpe cted “eat in site” night, the Crew seized the opportuni ty to experiment with th e meal. We explored questions such as how baking ingredients work, how and why certain ingred ients work together, and microbiology. Renowned Chef George Kouloheras lead the crew with a special activity designed to explore the science and art of cooking. Crewmembers split into teams and everyone got into the mix of making the meal. Menu: Monkey Brain Bread Meat Loaf Simon Rice Corn On The Cob Homemade Vanilla Ice Cream Topics Safe Food Handling Yeast (friendly micro-organisms that saved the world) Temperature monitoring and control The adventures of dry ice. (CO2-) Chief Scientific Officer BJ Lobao commented that in his 40 years of experience in scientific research he never actually ate an experiment!
