Cooking for Geeks

We geeks are fascinated by how things work, and most of us eat, too. If you’re the innovative type who asks why just as often as what , my book, “Cooking for Geeks: Real Science, Great Hacks, and Good Food” will show you a new way to approach the kitchen.
Cooking for Geeks is more of a book about cooking than it is a cookbook. The book contains explanations of the science behind cooking, interviews with researchers and chefs, experiments for the reader to try, and recipes to tie it all together.
