Why does fresh, hot toast have a more complex flavor than plain bread? Why does cooking raw food in general result in mouthwatering smells and a rich taste? The answer lies with the Maillard reaction, also known as the “browning reaction.” The chemistry behind this reaction is responsible for those good smelling steaks. By delving into how this process works, Reactions helps you get the most deliciousness out of your cooking.
