Cook’s Science Live: The Burger Tour

Join Cook’s Science Live on a quest to answer one of America’s most pressing questions: What makes a burger so good?

For Cook’s Science: The Burger Tour Executive Editors, Dan Souza and Molly Birnbaum, use interactive video, music, scent, storytelling, and live experiments to take you on their journey from top bun to bottom bun and everything in between. Together, you’ll learn how sound changes our perception of lettuce, why the glass ketchup bottle is a cruel joke, how grass can change the flavor of beef fat, and why the most important ingredient in your hamburger bun is actually a vegetable. Bring an open mind; your most pressing food, science, or cooking questions; and a friend. It’s going to be fun (and weird, but in a good way).
