Sat 19 Oct 2:30 pm - 3:30 pm

In this mouth-watering tour of your twenty-first century kitchen, BBC1 One Show resident scientist, writer and all-round Science Bloke Dr Marty Jopson addresses conundrums such as: Why is bamboo bad for knives? How and why do you process cheese? What’s the science of stuffing olives? Why don’t people like sprouts? And why will the yuck factor be part of the future of our food? Expect demos, audience participation and microscopes! The book that accompanies this talk lays bare food science from lab-grown beefburgers to the five-second rule, and from chocoholism to breakfast cereal.
