If you can get your hands on a copy of a great book called "CookWise" by Shirley O. Corriher ... it might be an interesting addition to your food science studies. Corriher is a biochemist by training, but a chef at heart, and she often explains the scientific reasons for recipes turning out great (or not).... do you know which bowl is better for beating egg whites: stainless steel or copper? It also has 230 recipes in the 500-page book. (Wm. Morrow & Co, publisher.)
