Cooking: Art or Science?

If the way to our hearts is through our stomachs, what happens when you bring the brain into it? That’s what the cooking show “America’s Test Kitchen” has built its brand on: ultra specific, scientifically-tested methods that favor exact formulas over imprecise, dash-of-this, dash-of-that cooking. “America’s Test Kitchen” will launch a new web venture to further that brand in July. In the meantime, Madeleine hosts a debate on the best way to cook: from the head or from the heart?
