Food Science Day, The Return…

FT3 comments • 279 views

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).

    Waitrose did mini Chorizo-covered eggs a while back – they were yummy.

    as an experiment i’ve changed the front page’s twitter widget to be the #freakytrigger stream instead of the official @freakytrigger account. it’s bit great looking, and i might be able to get something better with more time if it’s deemed a good thing.

    mini Chorizo-covered eggs

    i read this as ‘chorizo-covered mini eggs’ at first and was mildly perturbed.
