    the only people who say this never actually learned how to cook.
    they treat recipes like labratory instructions but fail to understand that their kitchen is not a controlled labratory environment.

        The problem with that attitude is that no matter how precisely you control heat, cooking time, and measurements, you'll never be able to control your ingredients in a scientific manner.

        Suppose your recipe calls for 2 lbs of pork shoulder, 1 white onion, 2 cloves of garlic, 1 tsp of oregano and 1 tsp of ground black pepper. Sounds simple enough, right? Problem is that no two pork shoulders are going to have the same ratio of lean to fat. Onions and garlic cloves will vary in size dramatically from one to the next. Herbs and spices will have radically different potency depending on how old they are.

        So, if you follow the exact same recipe with scientific precision every time, you'll end up with widely varying results, some good and some bad. To make good food, you have to adjust cooking times and ingredient quantities to account for the variance in your ingredients. It's why most recipes include a last step that says "season to taste."

          This is quite a poor argument. Nobody who desires "scientific" precision is going to measure "1 white onion" or "2 cloves of garlic". Instead, it will be measured by mass, which is reproducible.

          This is why there are tons of mass-produced food products out there that manage to taste identical every time.

              That's a totally different argument, and one which I agree with, but basically irrelevant. The reality is you can apply the scientific method to cooking, but it is only really applicable to industrial scale processes.

              baking requires precise recipes and heat
              cooking on a pot or pan doesnt require precision, you do it as you like

              Similarly, I think this is kind of moronic. Baking is no more or less scientific than any other form of cooking. My wife and I bake a few loaves each week. She goes strictly by recipe, I go strictly by feeling with an idea of what I want in the end. Invariably, I produce a better bread.

    Unless your only ingredient is sugar (i.e. confectionary science), then you're dealing with organic chemistry and it's far too complicated to understand on a scientific level, hence the terms of art.

    Does cooking have theoretical posits distinguishable from those of chemistry and biology? No, and therefore it's not a science. One can use scientific investigations to refine their cooking process, but this is the same as a painter using a chemical process to change the colour of a paint. Just as the application of science does not make painting or carpentry or welding itself a science, so with cooking.

    the way people worship "science" without actually understanding what science is (and isn't) is always hilarious. meanwhile 70% of all research papers are unreproducible because it's all p-hacking and data fraud because nobody actually values good science, they just want to read an article that tells them that "science proves your inherent political biases are right"

    if you're not doing A-B testing in the kitchen you're not doing science and if you are doing A-B testing you're a fricking tosser

    I know this is a bait thread but precise metrics for recipes are unreliable. It all depends on the potency of the ingredients. Sometimes you need more, only way of knowing is to taste it and use common sense. If you don't taste the food as you cook you're doing it wrong.

    Disagree.
    Most recipes you can get away with eyeball measurements.
    The closest you can get to cooking as a science is baking, since being off a little on the recipe can make a big difference.

    Science is used to create art. Sourdough is a direct result of science, food safety is science, nutritional considerations are science. But to make any of those combine into something worth a frick would be an art

    Something can be both a science and an art. Cooking is a combination of chemistry and art in the same way that music is acoustics and art. Understanding, preparation, presentation, and purpose.

        What you posted is called "Reductio ad absurdum", or reducing the argument to the absurd. It's a form of argument that ignores context and nuance and instead invalidly suggests that, a given extreme being impermissible, any gradient between it and the opposite extreme must be equally impermissible. It's also a false equivalence.

    If you treat cooking as a science you get scientific results.
    If you treat cooking as an art you get artistic results.
