9780929526188: Chaos in the Kitchen = Symmetry at the Table

The Aspen Center for Physics is pleased to announce the publication of a cookbook, "Chaos in the Kitchen = Symmetry at the Table", an entertainment, both Epicurean and exotic. There are recipes by Nobel Laureates, longtime Aspen residents and physics' spouses, who have cooked using unfamiliar equipment in kitchens all over the world.

This book has been compiled by two physics/wife volunteers during the last three years and includes reminiscences about Aspen in the 1950s when the Center had its birth, as well as serious underlying cooking chemistry by noted author and physicist, Harold McGee; a prehistoric tuna fish sandwich assembled by Marcia Southwick, poet and wife of Nobelist Murray Gell-Mann. The recipes come from all parts of the world and are readily cookable using kitchen equipment usual in most American kitchens.

Proceeds from the sale of the cookbooks will go to support the many programs and outreach lectures sponsored by the Aspen Center for Physics in the Roaring Fork Valley.
