NRELEd: Science in the Kitchen

Meghan Pearson, Thomas Mason

    Research output: NRELMarketing


    Science and math are big part of recipe building. Bakers test combinations of ingredients until they make the perfect batch of cookies. Once satisfied, they write down their ratio of ingredients they used. This becomes their recipe. Recipes are experiments that can be easily replicated. Other bakers can follow these recipes, make their own adjustments until they are happy with the recipe, and then write down their version. Through this process, families end up with their own “secret” recipes. Ask your family to see if you have any special recipes, and enjoy making some delicious cookies. What changes will you make?
