Breakfast with Food Sleuth Shirley Corriher – What’s on Your
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.
