Osaka University & Osaka Gas: Academic Cooking, Vol. 51 -- "No Pressure, No Life" -- With pressure, things change so much!

2014-9-26 (Fri) 6:30 p.m. - 9:00 p.m.

Kaitokudo for the 21st Century and Osaka Gas have jointly been holding a series of unique lectures on a particular food followed by the cooking and eating that food. The 51st "volume" of Academic Cooking will be held on Friday, September 26, 2014. SHIMIZU Katsuya, Professor, Center for Quantum Science and Technology under Extreme Conditions, will give the lecture. This session is sure to be interesting so don't miss it!

Pressure cookers are helpful. They reduce the cooking time and make foods tasty and delicious like magic. Speaking of magic, a vacuum bottle keeps hot drinks hot and cold juice cold. What do a pressure cooker and thermos look like on the inside? Both of these do their magic by manipulating pressure. The pressure cooker uses high pressure; the thermos, low pressure. In this lecture, participants will learn the magic of pressure by turning familiar ingredients into a delicacy through the use of pressure. Not only tasty food, but also getting the right amount of nutrients in one's diet is important. People often talk about getting enough iron or vitamin, but are you aware of the chemical elements in foods? Prof. Shimizu will talk about the latest research regarding such elements by using pressure as a key word while taking a look at the chemical elements in ordinary foods.
