Kitchen Myths

We all know those sayings and bits of common knowledge that we’ve heard since childhood. You know, eating turkey makes you sleepy, all the alcohol cooks out of a dish, mixing liquors will get you drunker. Well, what if you found out those were all not true. Bruce Weinstein and Mark Scarbrough’s new book Lobsters Scream When You Boil Them is here to do just that. Together this team of debunkers takes on more than one hundred popular kitchen myths and offers answers to the many burning questions revolving around food science. Some other myths they discuss include the idea that the tongue has four kinds of taste buds and that putting an avocado pit in the guacamole will prevent it from turning brown. Lobsters Scream When You Boil Them is available in stores and online for $16.
