Math in the Kitchen:
Do You Measure Up?
Is baking basic chemistry? Are ingredients basic biology? Is cooking basic
math? If you canвЂ™t tell a tsp from a Tbsp, youвЂ™re likely to get a pancake when
you wanted a souffle. Basic math is needed to help you properly prepare a recipe your guests will enjoy, or to change your favorite
recipe to serve ten people instead of four.
