Cooking Material is an ebook that teaches you how to create Do-It-Yourself matter inspired by cooking. You will learn to whip beeswax instead of cream, to get a very spongy emulsion, or make glass starting from the caramel recipe. This essay intends to playfully creating a new tie between culinary and non-culinary, organic and inorganic ingredients. Are these “special” recipes edible ? Not at all! What is their use, then ? For one, disseminating the elementary knowledge of chemical-physical reactions taking place in different materials, while stimulating creativity in adolescents and bringing back curiosity in adults !
