Tuesday August 11, 2009 | Food Preservation

August 7, 2009 at 11:40 am | Posted in Coming Up | 4 Comments

Chef Peter Reinhart is back for a new twist on our monthly food show. Chances are you have a fully cooked meal sealed in a pouch in your lunchbox, cupboard or freezer that will last for months, if not years, and still be edible when you heat it up. We’ll explore the modern preservation of food. What chemicals and processes preserve meals for so long and do these meals retain true freshness and nutrition? We’ll also hear from experts on canning, drying, freezing and curing foods in a more natural way.

There’s a group of people who swing into action at times of disaster but also work everyday in factories, offices and other business environments as workplace detectives. They are industrial hygienists. Their job is to spot potential hazards and come up with solutions to protect workers and the general public. Before they came along, people were getting sick at work and no one knew why. We’ll find out how they do what they do and what they look for.
