Science Museum of Minnesota teams with Doug Flicker of Piccolo to discuss the science of food
|Doug Flicker, taste technician|
Piccolo restaurant's Doug Flicker is paired with Dr. Gary A. Reineccius from the University of Minnesota department of food, science, and nutrition. Dr. Reineccius describes his work as problem-solving for the food and flavor industry. Flicker was last seen playing with his food on Andrew Zimmern's Bizarre Foods America, describing a substance he uses in his kitchen as "meat glue." It's sure to be a tasty talk. Best of all? It's free.
The discussion will be in downtown St. Paul at the Amsterdam Bar, appropriate as we generally consider Flicker a rock star in this industry. "Gastronomy: The Art & Science of Food" will be held Tuesday, March 13, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.
