Podcasts about kitchen chemistry

Back in 2004 Webjørn Espeland from NRK P2 (Norwegian radio) interviewed me about chemistry in the kitchen. These are now re-aired in the program “Verdt å vite” which can be downloaded as mp3 files (only in Norwegian):

August 22, 2006 – Why do you smell after eating garlic?
August 24, 2006 – Why does milk and pasta boil over?
August 29, 2006 – How salad leafs can benefit from osmosis

More to come…
