Hey there! The last year or so has been a busy time for us, with a lot of degree-earning and job-switching. We’ll tell you more about that later, because right now we want to break the ice with a post about Cell, the scientific journal which just released a special issue on the Biology of Food.
So, what so cool about this issue, besides the alien-esque picture of an apple on the cover? This article is filled with great articles, reflections and experiments by some of the world’s leading food scientists, and comes right on the heels of the journal’s recent collaboration with Top Chef (anything sound familiar there?). Find more about the contents of the issue, or even listen to a podcast from Michael Brenner. If you hurry, you can download a few of the articles from Cell for free. We thought we’d share some of the tidbits that caught our fancy and may inspire some upcoming experiments.
