Congratulations to Angela Smith, Founder of Inquisicook for being the WomensNet $10,000 September Business Specific Grant recipient in the category of “Education and Child Care”.
Here is part of her story:
I believe cooking is the ultimate applied science.
Inquisicook is an innovative concept that combines food science and culinary arts into an engaging, hands-on course that puts food on the family table. Our students learn how heat transforms protein molecules, what’s going on inside the plant cells of wilted lettuce, and how kneading bread dough develops gluten and creates the matrix that supports the loaf. We couple this information with foundational culinary skills, teaching young cooks how to separate eggs, debone chicken breasts, and use a double-boiler. They apply their newly acquired knowledge by preparing wholesome, tasty dishes the whole family can enjoy.
The grant award will help Angela advance Inquisicook into the next step of market development.
