Ingredient: Unveiling the Essential Elements of Food Author Ali Bouzari has a strong identity of being both a experienced chef and PhD food scientist, but he doesn’t feel like Dr. Jekyll or Mr. Hyde. Rather, he draws from both worlds and has crafted his own identity as a culinary scientist.

Join us for an encore appearance with Ali as we talk about fine dining, well-designed food product development experiments, and what he has in his pantry at Pilot R+D.
