If you are a food geek you already know this. But for those of you who don’t keep up with the fascinating world of gastronomic experimentation through biology, chemistry, neuroscience, and physics, the Taste of Science presented by The World Science Festival is a big deal. The event took place last weekend in New York. The sessions featured neuroscientists, biophysicists, food scientists, chemists, mixologists and chefs. And right there with Wylie Dufresne (WD-50), Maxime Bilet (co-author of Modernist Cuisine: The Art and Science of Cooking) and César Vega (Food Scientist with the physical chemistry of cocoa and chocolate), was Private Social chef Najat Kaanache.
