Test Tube Kitchen is a place to explore the science behind what we do every day in the kitchen. I debunk myths, put adages to the test, and revamp recipes, in the hope that understanding the whys of boiling, baking, and browning will make me a better cook. Come along for the ride!
My name is Stephanie Warren. I’m a food geek and a science geek too. When I’m not blogging or cooking, I’m writing about science, usually in my PJs, from my small apartment in New York City. I’m fascinated by the science of the everyday, and food science tops that list.
