Wrapping up collaboration between Young Chefs and East Boston YMCA

A great way to end the collaboration between Young Chefs Program: From Cooking to Science and East Boston YMCA: the chefs from America’s Test Kitchen teach the science of ice cream and phase changes. During the 10-week program, students have explored a range of lesson plans from out curriculum (, learning everything from the chemistry of chili peppers to crystal formation in chocolate. Today students made their own ice cream in a ziplock bag – one group made toasted sesame-cinnamon (!). Excited for this new generation of chef-scientists!
