Last week world class cooks and food inclined scientists began descending on the Harvard School of Engineering and Applied Sciences to teach public lectures on the science of cooking. This is a yearly seminar that features such culinary luminaries as sous-vide evangelist Salvador Brugués, molecular gastronomist and White House pastry chef Bill Yosses, and Momofuku's David Chang who apparently really likes talking about properly rotting aging meat.

Each lecture will be livestreamed as they happen and all the lectures will eventually find their way onto Youtube and iTunes.

Here's a video giving you a taste of the in-depth nature of these talks. This particular video shows how it's possible to make something akin to an artificial egg yolk filled with whatever flavors you could imagine.

Here's the complete list of lecturers and their scheduled times.
