Want to learn what happens to green tea when you add liquid nitrogen to it? Or when you combine mozzarella cheese with carbon dioxide? If so, visit the World of Wonders Science Museum on Saturday, where local chefs will present food demonstrations using the technique known as molecular gastronomy.
The event will kick off with winetasting and a presentation on how and why the taste buds change when wine is paired with certain foods. Seven chefs from local restaurants including Rosewood, Alebrijes and Wine & Roses will offer a selection of hors d’oeuvres before the molecular gastronomy presentations.
Sally Snyde, president of the museum, said the event will be a fun way to raise funds for the museum and educate about a new fad in the food industry at the same time.
“We always want to have fundraisers but wanted to do something different,” she said.
The event will be held from 6 to 9 p.m. and will include a live auction. Tickets are $35 per person or $60 per couple. To purchase tickets, call 368-0969 or visit the museum at 2 N. Sacramento St. today through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
