    4/5, 4 out of 5, reviewed Oct 25, 2018
    This is a cookbook that explains how science influences our cooking. The book has a lot of hacks, and some wonderful scientific explanation explained in simple terms. The best part of the book was the way he went ahead and demolished some common food myths through simple experiments. I tried out some of those experiments and was pretty impressed by the results.

    My only issue with this book was the size. Thank God, Lopez-Alt did not include baking, or else it would have run into more than 1500 pages.

    To sum up, not your everyday cookbook, but a book that you should have in your home library.
