A Breakfast with Food Sleuth Shirley Corriher – What’s on Your Table?

Shirley Corriher, Biochemist and Author

Cooking is chemistry, and Shirley Corriher makes it accessible. She explains everything you could ever want to know (and then some) about the chemical processes of eggs, fats, breads, sauces, and other foods. She is an author, chef, and a biochemist. As an article in Food and Wine put it “If it’s about food and you want to know why, Shirley is the person to figure it out.” She is famous for the "protein hop" - an interpretive dance of sorts to demonstrate the molecular transformations that turn flour, eggs, and sugar into a cake. Her arms wave vigorously, mimicking how proteins in wheat flour interlock to provide the structure that holds a baked good together. After a morning with Shirley you will never see food the same way again. Meet this award-winning author of CookWise and BakeWise. Sponsored by Northrop Grumman.

Ticket: $25
