New blog for

I have created the blog to accompany the website The name of this site, khymos, is Greek meaning “juice”. It is however related to al-kimiya, the Arabic word from which our word chemistry derives from. Other related words include Khemia, the old name of Egypt (meaning land of black earth) and the Greek khein and khymatos meaning “to pour” and “that which is poured out” respectively. So in a sense, the word khymos provides a link between chemistry and food! I therefore thought it would be a suitable name for a site dealing with molecular gastronomy and related subjects.
