This course gives you a chemistry background for cooking. You'll learn how to properly marinate, and connect it with the diffusion equation, you'll learn how is the best chocolate made, how the Maillard reactions occur and why we coat dough with yolk or baking soda, how the temperature changes affect the ingredients, how can you use gels and different fats, and understand their chemical background. All in all, even if you don't know anything about chemistry or cooking, this is a great way to find out, and if you're a chemistry or cooking enthusiast, this is a perfect way to get a look of the other side. The course features not only excellent presenters and professors, but also famous chefs sharing their techniques and recipes. I'm enrolling into the second course on physics right now - this one is truly a gem.

The idea of the course is excellent, but it would be good to make a initial review of the Chemistry concepts in order to level. Some videos are too quick to follow them, specially for a non native English speaker. Congrats.
