Food, glorious food!
Join us for a feast of the senses as celebrity chef Ben Milbourne and BrisScience’s own Joel Gilmore turn the lecture theatre into a live test kitchen.
Joel and Ben will use their scientific training to demonstrate the physical sciences that underpin everyday cooking, through to high end cuisine and molecular gastronomy.
They will discuss (and demonstrate!) how emulsions, foams and chemical bonds play a critical role in everything from the perfect steak to the perfect ice cream; and then, leverage this science to create new textures and experiences – from edible bubbles to crunchy chocolate mousse!
This event is just two short weeks away – so RSVP early to avoid missing out.

Meet the presenters:
Ben Milbourne is a former science teacher turned MasterChef finalist and entrepreneur – and an outstanding example of the diverse career pathways that can result from studying at UQ.
After graduating, Ben taught science in high school, and his students nominated him for the hit television series, MasterChef. It was the platform to a career as sought-after chef, media personality, brand ambassador, and founder of his own production company. He is the host of Food Lab by Ben Milbourne, a TV show produced in partnership with The University of Queensland.
Dr Joel Gilmore completed a PhD in physics at the University of Queensland in 2007. He then spent two years as a full time science communicator, managing a group of physics performers doing public lectures, radio and television appearances. He is now an energy consultant, and is passionate about providing critical analysis that helps industry and government transition our energy sector to a low emissions future.
As a great lover of cooking (and even more so of eating) Joel applies his physics background to understanding food and the culinary arts. In his spare time, he likes swing dancing, theatre sports, travelling (43 countries so far), stand-up comedy, learning new musical instruments and, occasionally, unicyling to work.
