Cooking for Geeks
Cooking for Geeks is a great book that pretty much goes into the magic of cooking and proves that there is no magic, just fascinating science that you will discover and learn to use for yourself and make fantastic science-y infused dishes. The only magic left after all this is the dash of love you'll sprinkle at the end.
It explains the science behind cooking, covering all topics from types of cooking (including cooking on a water bath), kinds of spices, types of knives and how to use them, it contains info on chemistry of food combination and you can even find out how you can dramatically off yourself while cooking with liquid nitrogen, blowtorches and an electrocuted hot dog. You read that right. Adam Savage from Myth Busters contributes to this book and we're sure it'll be a fun chapter to read.
So don't miss out on this geeky book, filled up to its eyes in nicely packed information that will help you cook delicious meals.
