The new workshop on Molecular Gastronomy
When spring comes, new words flourish, but indeed, it is perhaps not unnecessary to say clearly that :
1. Sciences of nature (sometimes called natural sciences) are activities where you look for phenomena using the scientific method (observing a phenomenon, measuring it, grouping the data into equations, looking for a theory, trying to refute the theory)
2. Technologies are activities of improving the technique (often using the results of sciences of nature).
3. "Applied sciences" cannot exist : the tree is not the fruit. If it is a science, it is not "applied", and if it is applied, this is technique or technology (and there, whereas applied sciences don't exist, there are applications of sciences)
More focused, now :
4. Food sciences are activities about studying food scientifically.
2. Food technology is the activity of improving food (often using the result of food sciences)
3. Among food sciences, there are sciences for ingredients (finding new compounds in food ingredients),
4. The science for looking for mechanisms occuring during cooking is called "molecular and physical gastronomy", shortened in "molecular gastronomy".
And this is why I invite you to distribute the announcement of the next "International Workshop on Molecular and Physical Gastronomy", in Paris (France), June 5-7.
The topic will be : Flavour through Cooking.
