Chemical Experiments in Restaurants

http://www.nbcsandiego.com/news/local/Its-Science-New-Restaurant-Experiments-With-Themed-Drinks-Food-275221101.html

This restaurant is experimenting with making drinks using chemical reactions and methods.  The idea for the restaurant, Zymology 21, was created from its name, “zymology” meaning the science of fermentation.  The idea grew from there to incorporate chemistry methods into the entire menu, including food.

Do you think that food and drinks created using science equipment taste better or worse? Is there an advantage to using the science equipment as opposed to regular cookware?

GMO labeling

As we discussed last week, Senate recently killed a bill that would require companies to label GM ingredients on their products.  After the bill was killed, several companies stepped forward and vowed to include GMO labeling.  General Mills will be the first major company to include GMO labeling.

Question: Do you think that GMO labeling should be mandatory for all companies?
