Its been a while during which various arrangements were made, but finally the basic details of FOOD SCIENCE DAY can be outlined. An idea patched together on the night of Rob Bolton’s leaving party, you could not stop some of our foodie friends to think of food based “experiments” which needed doing. Like, what fruit can be thrown the furthest. The Omelet of 1000 Eggs. That thing when you cook loads of bird inside each other, only with fish. And lots of other great ideas.

So Sunday 28th August in Peckham Rye will be the site of the first annual Food Science Day. We will have a nearby kitchen to use too, but obviously the throwing events will take place in the park. The plan is to meet in the Clock House off Peckham Rye at about 2pm, and then to split into science style project groups. The Clock House is here. Any suggestions for other science can be done in the comments box, or on this ILx Thread.

A special note, one of the people who though up Food Science Day was Liz Daplyn, who readers will be aware was sadly killed in the 7/7 bombing. We will be dedicating this day of food based frivolity to her and hope that it will reflect her dedication to always doing interesting things with food – and having fun.
