Cooking is all about chemistry and is nothing more than a series of chemical reactions. This Multimedia Pathway Unit explains the "science" involved in cooking and food preparation. Featuring the "Scientific Principles" DVD series, students will learn advanced food science concepts involving chemical properties, enzymes, solutions and emulsions. Food handling and storage, along with basic scientific procedures and safety are also discussed. Renown experts, 3-D graphics/animations and lab-based activities create a powerful learning tool for those students interested in the more complex aspects of food science. This MPU comes with an Interactive Teacher's Resource Guide containing lesson plans and a variety of worksheets, activities, notes and projects.
