FSEM: What happn when we cook?
Academic Term and Year
Area of Study
Do you feel like a snack? How about a gluten foam that has been heated to denature the proteins, topped with an emulsion of water in fat and a pectin gel? Sound appetizing? Or interesting? If so, this is the class for you! In this course we will explore the components of our food, such as sugars, fats, proteins, etc. We will also study the physical and chemical changes that occur during cooking conditions, such as heating, cooling, and mixing. In addition, we will also learn about the effect that food has on us through our senses, studying flavor, fragrance and appearance. While studying our food can be interesting and challenging, the best way to learn what happens during cooking is to experiment. We will devote class time to cooking and experimenting, and will come to some (hopefully) delicious conclusions. P.S. In case you’re curious, the snack was a peanut butter and jelly sandwich.
