Jeff Potter is curious about the science of food and loves finding answers to why ingredients and recipes work the way they do. By bringing science to food-minded people—and food to science-minded people—he blends genres to educate the public about how to master the kitchen. He’s been featured in USA Today, the Today Show, and is a regular guest on Science Friday. He’s even had the pleasure (and terror) of making a 500-pound donut for Food Network.

When not in the kitchen cooking with friends, Jeff Potter works with organizations and tech startups, building the technology behind their products. He studied computer science and visual art at Brown University. He can be found online at www.jeffpotter.org.

Lab: Salmon Gravlax

“Hackers, makers, programmers, engineers, nerds, techies — what we’ll call “geeks” for the rest of the book (deal with it) — we’re a creative lot who don’t like to be told what to do.”
Jeff Potter, Cooking for Geeks: Real Science, Great Hacks, and Good Food

“The modern geek is more than just a refined version of the stereotypical movie geek from the ’80s.”
