Elements of Cooking: Fire

Explore the multifaceted and transformative effects of this most compelling cooking element; fire, with Meredith Leigh. Our foods can take on many nuanced flavors with its influence, as we grill, smoke, barbecue, sear and more, but what scientific processes are going on that make all this possible? What can we learn about fire that will enhance our cooking skills and deepen our knowledge while revealing the mystery of this primordial force in our kitchen? In this workshop, we will approach fire science from the cook’s perspective and help you find new ways to integrate more fiery flavors into your everyday meals.
