This is the first episode of a series we like to call #NerdKitchen and we’ve gotten two nerds who are known for their kitchen exploits to talk about the science behind common things in the kitchen.

Your hosts for the podcast are @maxdavinci & @ajit_bhaskar and you can follow their exploits on Instagram here and here.

This will hopefully not be a boring science class of organic chemistry talking about the Kekule structure in Benzene.

We’ll instead focus on the daily things around us like what makes chillis so hot, and why do they serve cheese with wine?

Do listen and let us know what topics/cuisines you’d like to listen on the pod or if any guests you would like us to invite and feature in the series.

The music bits are from this fabulous song.
