Stretched ice-cream and liquid smoke are just some of the quirky foods being made at the University of Waikato next week. Guest speaker Professor Kent Kirshenbaum of New York University is giving a free public lecture on the chemistry and physics of food. His visit is part of his national tour to mark the inaugural International Year of Chemistry. Professor Kirshenbaum’s lecture will involve demonstrations including using industrial processes to turn cheese into airy delights. He will also have samples of new confectionary that he’s been working on.
Professor Kirshenbaum’s presentation, which is supported by the Waikato Branch of the New Zealand Institute of Chemistry, begins at 1pm on Tuesday August 9 and is held in the PricewaterhouseCoopers lecture theatre at the University of Waikato Hamilton campus. It is free and open to the public.
