Reviews

Chemistry professor emeritus and award-winning food columnist Wolke offers a reference guide to the science of food, everything from the truth about raw sugar and cream of tartar to how microwaves and "instant-read" thermometers actually function, explaining it all in a clear, accessible, and fun fashion. Sean Runnette turns in a subtle, winning performance in this audio edition, capturing the spirit of the text-his reading both informs and entertains-and delivering friendly, clear, and steady narration. Additionally, Runnette is restrained and wry-and vaguely reminiscent of Niles Crane from TV's Frasier-nailing the book's many moments of humor. This delightful audiobook-which includes a PDF with more than 30 recipes from the author's wife, Marlene Parrish-is a must for foodies and science fans. A W.W. Norton paperback. (Feb.)

"Wolke... is one of the great demystifiers of science information... wonderful at answering those vexing food questions you always wondered about but never got around to investigating yourself." -- BusinessWeek "The author... breathes fun and fact into his work, making this book a good choice for any cook." -- Chicago Tribune
