Inside any piece of food, there are eight “mother” ingredients and each of them has a personality of things it does and does not do. That handful of patterns explains everything that happens in any dish, regardless of style or skill level. Rather than address every recipe and technique individually, chasing details around forever, Dr. Ali Bouzari wants to simplify, connecting the dots between techniques and stripping them down to basic patterns.

Join us for “Ingredient: An Evening with Chef and Biochemist Dr. Ali Bouzari” – a condensed crash course in what a foodie needs to know about how food works – on an essential and elemental level. The experience is part of “The Chef and the Doctor”– our series of health-focused, multi-course culinary experiences featuring world renowned doctors and Chef David Bouley. Dr. Bouzari’s presentation will be followed by a wellness-inspired, biodynamic multi-course wine dinner created and prepared by Chef David Bouley.

Ali has been featured as a contributor to Popular Science, Eater, and The San Francisco Chronicle and as a guest expert on NPR, TEDx, and Iron Chef America.
