Cooking with chemistry: Francois Chartier

"It wasn’t a question of originality, it was science speaking to me: ‘my boy, you have to combine these foods.’"

What makes certain foods pair so well? Why do other combinations fall short? Francois Chartier uses molecular chemistry to investigate the dominant ingredients in our favorite foods — uncovering some surprisingly tasty blends. (French with English subtitles.) (Filmed at TEDxUdeM.)

Each week, we choose four of our favorite talks, highlighting just a few of the enlightening speakers from the TEDx community, and its diverse constellation of ideas worth spreading. Browse all TEDxTalks here »
