August 14th, 2012
CLEVELAND (August 14, 2012) – Ever want to play with your food and not get into trouble for it? Here’s your chance! On Saturday, August 25, from 11 am to 4 pm, Great Lakes Science Center, home of the NASA Glenn Visitor Center, is hosting “The Fusion of Food and Science,” with a special appearance by Chef Steve Schimoler of Cleveland’s crop bistro & bar.
Chef Steve, a world-famous chef who owns crop bistro & bar in Ohio City, has been featured on Food Nation and PBS MasterChef series. He will bring his culinary artistry and food science expertise to the Science Center and show guests, via science experiments, how important their senses are in the tasting process. Families of all ages are invited to watch and participate in taste experiments, while learning the science behind food.
“Between our passion for scientific inquiry and Chef Steve’s passion for food, we thought a fusion event would be a unique way to bridge the two concepts together,” said Dante Centuori, director of creative productions, Great Lakes Science Center. “And the truth is – experimenting with food is something that no one ever really outgrows!”
This event is free with paid general admission to Great Lakes Science Center. Demonstrations are available on a first-come, first-served basis and limited quantities are available. Individuals with dairy, latex, egg or nut allergies are asked not to participate in tasting experiments.
Media is invited to attend. This event is open to the public.
