Advanced Kitchen Chemistry

Once I’m done with Kitchen Chemistry, I’ll move on to the more advanced level. Below are the topics covered by Advanced Kitchen Chemistry*. You can find course descriptions and materials on the original website.

Just like with the previous course, I’ll be covering a topic a week, writing about things that worked or didn’t work, about new discoveries, and finally reporting on the assignments. I plan on writing to two posts per week and will post the links on this page as I progress through assignments.
