Cooking for Geeks #85

November 12, 2010

This episode was recorded when Science for the People was called Skeptically Speaking.

We set the table for Jeff Potter, author of Cooking for Geeks: Real Science, Great Hacks and Good Food. From overclocking your kitchen appliances to recipes right out of a chemistry lab manual, we’ll explore how delicious cooking can be when you add a dash of nerd. Immunologist Dr. Gary Stadtmauer joins us to explain the science behind food allergies.

Dr. Stadmauer mentioned two allergy resources on this episode: and the Food Allergy Initiative.

Desiree mentioned a news story she had read about poppy seeds causing a false positive on a drug test, leading to a newborn being removed from her parents.
