Palo Alto 4-Hers Attend “Cooking Up Science” Day Camp

June 25, 2013
Emmetsburg News

Why is gluten important when baking? What is an emulsifier? What does salt do to your hamburger? The kids of Palo Alto now know! On Thursday, June 13th six 4-Hers in grades 4-6 explored the ins and outs of sugar cookies and many other cooking techniques at the Cooking Up Science summer camp held by Iowa State University Extension. At the camp all-purpose flour and soy flour were used to show gluten formation, salt was added to hamburger bringing out proteins important for cooking, their tongues were used to make a flavor taste map, and many more fun activities! Everyone received a clover cookie cutter and the top secret Clover Cookie Recipe. They won't be sharing the recipe but they might be willing to use their new skills for a taste testing near you!

Attending the workshop were Thomas and Aliza Woodford, Jackson Lowman, Therese Matthews, and Matt & Mackenzie Berkland.
