Vancouver residents invited to learn more about food science

December 8, 2016 by  

This winter, Vancouver’s TELUS World of Science has planned an event that will explore the science behind mixology and gourmet cooking, all while raising funds to help children from the area develop an interest in science and technology.

According to the event’s organizers, the event will bring together some of the area’s most talented bartenders and chefs, all of whom will be performing live demonstrations that are intended to not only be interesting but delicious as well. They will explain the scientific principles that are a part of food preparation. Custom drinkware can be prepared by a printer for each guest to take home with them as a memento of the evening,

More than 20 different bar stations will be set up along with 12 food stations. All of these will be providing samples to the guests, who will also have an opportunity to engage in some hands on science while exploring all that the facility has to offer. This will give them a chance to see how it can spark an interest in science in the many children who come through the facility each year.

All of this will be a part of the TELUS Science World’s Science of Cocktails celebration, which will be held on February 9th from 8:00 pm until midnight. Tickets and further details are available on the event’s Facebook page.
