  • You know what this feels like. <br /> Ladies and Gents, when I was younger, students in the first year of physics. <br /> We’d grill them. This is some cosmic Karma, I guess. Anyway - the topic for show &tell <br />
  • lightning talk <br /> had 14 slides classic mistake: way too many slides <br /> Frances killed x of them - yes, my wife knows my physics professor - that tells you something allready. Breek ei. Gebruikte Irina eigenlijk slides ? <br />
  • Irina never used slides. <br /> But 7 minutes and only the blackboard is hard. <br /> Let’s pretend this is a blackboard - reason I had was to many is that I wanted physics examplles. This talk could be about a demonstration - Jan asked this But that would not teach you about Irina. <br />
  • and I could quip about how Irina was a master approximator (mainly because most of what she taught cannot be exactly solved.) Demonstration - break eggs. But that would not teach you about the important things Irina taught me. What does Irina have to say about cooking. <br />
  • And I think she projected this on her students. <br /> Some people seem to believe about the 7 rules of X. <br /> <br />

  • Seven minutes, seven rules <br /> First thing I learned whas about fundamentals <br /> But if you master the fundamentals, no problem. <br />
  • Best example is during exams. You remember - get to convince her to pick your own question - and make you think you got away with it. <br /> exams with Irina. pick your own question <br /> you need to train, exercise… H <br />

  • In the late years: Quantum physics applies to a lot of things. You do not know what something is until you measure. Try new things. Irina was a master at convicing people to try. If she hadn’t me, I would not be here. <br /> what is this - after my second year, I thought I had egg on my face (pick up eggs) - throw in audience… - she conviced me otherwise - imagine my surprise when I passed. went into PhD <br />

  • Later on, phD - again much freedom. Enjoy the thrill <br /> Errors never get documented. Or corrected. <br /> Once you went off the deep end, you realize <br />
  • Generalize this, you know that <br />
  • There are many cuisinse and cookbooks <br /> And there is one last - real culinary rule that came from the stories. In the trend of live a little. <br />

  • The final thing I’d like to share. Life a litte. Summarizing, these rules are about really understand science/life/cooking - not its techniques. I’d like to close with a quote from Alton Brown <br />
  • I am very grateful to have met that woman that understands the science and the 7 rules. <br /> Fundamentals - be prepared - The proof in in the pudding - The thrill of discovery - It’s not the recipe - There are many cookbooks - Try cooking with vodka. Thank you for understanding the science and teaching us the art. <br /> <br />

  • INTENTIONALLY EMPTY
  • EVERYTHING I KNOW ABOUT COOKING I LEARNED DURING PHYSICS CLASS DR. IR. MICHAEL PEETERS, BELL LABS
  • Epicurious
  • Epicurious Loves good food and dining. Not only physics.
  • 1. Fundamentals.
  • 1. Fundamentals. Everything else is combinatorics.
  • 2. Be prepared.
  • 2. Be prepared. It is not because you know what to cook that you know how to cook it.
  • 3. The proof of the pudding…
  • 3. The proof of the pudding… Not everything is what it looks like.
  • 4. The thrill of discovery.
  • 4. The thrill of discovery. And of getting it completely wrong.
  • 5. It’s not about the recipe.
  • 5. It’s not about the recipe. It’s the inspiration and passion you add.
  • 6. There are many cookbooks.
  • 6. There are many cookbooks. They cannot replace the wisdom of the cook, nor the stories that she tells while cooking.
  • 7. I love to cook with vodka.
  • 7. I love to cook with vodka. I sometimes even add it to the food.
  • “No matter how much creativity goes into it, cooking is an art. Or perhaps I should say a craft. It abides by absolute rules, physics, chemistry, etc. and that means that unless you understand the science you cannot reach the art.” Alton Brown
