To bridge this gap, I am going to provide some examples of what can be aptly described as 'culinary chemistry'. What causes apples to brown?

Whether we are going to review some stuff from school curriculum or learn something brand-new, I hope that at the end of the lesson everyone will have a chance to satiate their curiosity and, above all, have fun.
