Have you ever wondered why we combine ingredients in our recipes the way we do? Can we find scientific ways for altering diet to improve health? Data-driven investigations into traditional recipes have led us to discover ‘culinary fingerprints’ of regional cuisines, revealing the key role of spices and their broad-spectrum health benefits. Learn about this and more at our February Science Cafe, focused on computational gastronomy - an emerging discipline which holds promise of better health and nutrition.
