The kitchen is a chemical laboratory in which a number of chemical processes are conducted by which our food is converted from its crude state to a condition more suitable for digestion and nutrition, and made more agreeable to the palate. The Chemistry of Cookery shows that modern chemistry can throw into the kitchen a great deal of light that can help the cook in doing his or her work more efficiently. (Imprint: SNOVA)
