Cooking tips from Alton Brown: A new American Chemical Society video
Date:11/14/2013

Have you ever wondered why some ice cubes are as clear as glass, or why bakers use sugar, even in savory breads? Celebrity chef Alton Brown answers these questions in the American Chemical Society's (ACS') latest Bytesize Science episode. The video is available now on http://www.BytesizeScience.com.

"Everything that happens in the kitchen is science," Brown says. "So if you understand science, at least some of it, you're going to have more power over your food." In the video, Brown gives examples of this principle and explains the basic chemistry behind two of the most essential ingredients in the kitchen water and sugar.

If you want to impress guests by turning water into glassy rather than foggy ice cubes for your cocktails, the video notes that understanding the behavior of water molecules will help. As for the other key ingredient featured in the video, Brown talks about what makes sugar so important in baking, even in those instances when sweetness isn't the goal.
