Boston Cross(x)Species Adventure Club Workshop + Dinner
We will explore a nutrient we can barely see + without which we could survive mere minutes.
The air around us contains hundreds of thousands of organisms in every cubic meter, making it as alive as any soil or water, + every breath an intimate xSpecies moment. It is microbes that help form the delicate patterns in snowflakes + provide surface area for the condensation of water vapor and, hence, the creation of clouds.
We will uncover the science of ice cream, at once an emulsion + foam composed of ice crystals, [milk]fat +, vitally, air. You will be judge + contestant: does the molecule-thin chromium blade of the pacojet, the nano-sized ice crystals of the liquid nitrogen or the traditional churn make a tastier ice cream?
In each of 5+ courses, we will encounter vapors, smokes + stabilized bubbles, we will ingest air trapped in solids + suspend solids in air. With each course we will pair potables + look deeply into the foamy heads of craft beers which encapsulate liquid in air.
