Chef Robert Saia is a personality, a passionate educator, and a Renaissance man. An entrepreneur who never let degrees and pedigrees get in his way, Chef Robert is constantly looking for needs and ways to fill them. In this preview he talks about how he uses food science to explain to culinary students how the knowledge of what’s going on at a molecular level could make them better cooks.

Next week, you’ll get to hear about the Menu and Recipe Genesis app that he has created to help with recipe development and brainstorming.
