15 Sep Kitchen science fair
I’ve mentioned before that Valerian gets an upset stomach from eating foods that have a lot of baking powder in them. I’d never heard of this reaction before we met; in fact I don’t think I had ever given any thought to the leavening agents I used. I first read up on the chemistry of baked goods to maintain marital harmony. But if you’re ever interested in working out your own recipes, it does help to have a basic understanding of kitchen science to get the best results.
