Science of Food and Cooking: A Non-Science Majors Course
Miles, Deon T.; Bachman, Jennifer K.
Journal of Chemical Education, v86 n3 p311-315 Mar 2009
Recent emphasis on the science of food and cooking has been observed in our popular literature and media. As a result of this, a new non-science majors course, The Science of Food and Cooking, is being taught at our institution. We cover basic scientific concepts, which would normally be discussed in a typical introductory chemistry course, in the context of food and food preparation. A week-by-week description of the course curriculum is provided. Student assessment and results from student evaluations are reported. (Contains 3 tables.)
