Milk is a pretty cool thing. When we cook with it we tend to transform it completely. We can change milk into cheese, yogurt, ice cream oooh! or whipped cream! I love whipped cream!!!

The possible conversions of milk are very scientific! Take for example the pasteurization of milk. Pasteurization is a process that kills bacteria. By heating up the liquid most harmful bacteria’s and pathogens die!

There is endless possibilities when cooking with milk – that’s why this year’s Engineered Eats theme is milk!

And of course, Alberta Milk is the presenting sponsor of this year’s program!

Restaurants and bars all over Calgary are welcome to take up the challenge and create a menu item or drink concoction that features this year’s Engineered Eats theme.

Check out this recipe by David Leite that transforms milk and some simple ingredients into a sweet homemade liqueur.


That is just one way science is enhancing milk! I can’t wait to see what else is possible with milk during Engineered Eats! (I hope there is something to do with whipped cream!)

Restaurants and bars who are interested in participating in this year’s Beakerhead Engineered Eats program (September 14 – 18, 2016), please contact Paul at!
