8:25pm Om nom nom, they expanded and were covered in melted Mars bars and stuffed with ice cream and and… I think we are too drunk and too full to say any more tonight. More photos to come, not sure about scientific content of the day but food and drink was had by all. Hooray!

7.20pm Final science of the day, Cis is seeing how much choux pastry wll expand. Diameter buns from 1cm to 10cm have been piped onto the baking tray. Will they expand or will they POP!!!!

6.10 pmLawks – Meg is making a giant Kit Kat. Melted chocolate can be very messy! Oh and Cis and Moggy have turned up talking about doing something with Choux pastry. I keep saying Choux puns aren’t necessary but…


Food Science Day, The Return…

We interrupt the normal FreakyTrigger service for the return of Food Science Day, a day – in honour of FT poster Liz Daplyn – when we do science upon food. Now our definition of science may be flakier than the average, we honour physics, chemistry and biology though we also privilege puns as the highest form of science. We also drink a fair bit while at it. Coming from my flat this time I cannot as yet give you a thorough list of all the science that is to be done. However as a taster I can promise you Mars Bhaji’s, Jalepeno Grigio and an assortment of eggs from various nations – the Scotch Egg’s time is up.

There will be live blogging, and tweeting (follow @pb14) on the thread above. Who knows, we may not even die…

(While you wait here is the reverse engineered Mars Bar from Mars Planets from a previous food science day).
