The Island of Dr Gâteau.

There’s not much I appreciate as much in this world as a clever, witty idea and the person behind it. Which is why you should drop what you’re doing immediately (Immediately, I said!) and click over to The Island of Dr Gâteau, the most flipping genius food blog I’ve seen maybe, oh, EVER.

Jess, the brains behind the blog, combines her love of food and science in the coolest way – by conducting experiments in recipe creation. Sometimes her ideas are based on principles of molecular gastronomy or the science of taste (she’s doing a PhD in cognitive neuroscience, you know, in her spare time) and sometimes just because. From here she shares information about the biology and psychology of the eating experience and how the brain can be tricked gastronomically. If you’re a geeky girl at heart like me, then you’ll definitely appreciate Jess’s refreshing take on all things food.

PS: She’s damn handy with a camera, too!

PPS: Did you catch the play on words in the name of the blog?

    Wow, thank you so much for your incredibly kind words. There’s just so much fascinating science out there when it comes to food, and the more people I can get interested in the geeky side of food and eating, the better!
