Food science and the entire subject of Gastronomy is easy for those of us who love cooking and love eating! There are a lot of scientists and science-minded people who have had a lot to say about this intriguing subject. Rene Redzepi said, "I think that in our part of the world, Scandinavia, we are one of the pioneers of showing that gastronomy can be something - high gastronomy can be something very, very present and doesn't have to involve, you know, what is perceived as the normal luxury items that belong in a high gastronomy restaurant." Alain Ducasse had another view of the whole subject by saying, "Classical cooking and molecular gastronomy should remain separate. You can mix two styles and get fusion; any more, and you just get confused." It is interesting that he views it as something to keep separated.

These various food science people all have such different views on this subject!
