Baking Chemist’s Apprentice

Saturday, June 4, 2016
10:00 am - 11:30 am

Every dessert menu is covered in science: chemistry to be exact! Bring your appreciation (and appetite) for the perfect slice of pie when you step into the kitchen at Four & Twenty Blackbirds Bakery with NYU chemist Danielle Vellucci. Through starch and heat experimentation, dig into just what makes a crust and filling so delicious, and how the tiniest factors can make a world of difference when it comes to taste.

Note: This is a student-only program for kids in the 4th grade and up. Parents/Guardians should drop off their children for this one-hour event.
