What Einstein Kept Under His Hat

Secrets of Science in the Kitchen

Robert L. Wolke (Author)

With Marlene Parrish

Overview | Inside the Book

Chock-full of exercises and strategies, this book will allow clients to deepen the key principles of interpersonal neurobiology that Bonnie Badenoch wrote about in her earlier book. Topics include spotting implicit patterns, observing the bond with kindness, expanding our coherent narratives, coming to terms with the passage of time, and weaving brain talk into personal understanding.

Have you ever wondered why onions make us cry? Do you believe bananas contain more calories as they ripen and get sweeter? This sequel to the best-selling What Einstein Told His Cook continues Robert L. Wolke’s investigations into the science behind our foods. In response to ongoing questions from readers of his nationally syndicated Washington Post column, “Food 101,” Wolke debunks misconceptions with reliable, commonsense logic. And for exceptionally inquisitive cooks and scientists, he offers “Sidebar Science” features, which dig more deeply into the chemical processes that underlie food and cooking. Above all, What Einstein Kept Under His Hat provides indispensable information that will make readers better shoppers, cooks, and eaters.
