About Cooking

The word cooking comes from the Latin coquere and describes as a word the heating of a liquid to the boiling point. Furthermore, the cooking and preparation of food regardless of the method of preparation. The job title “cook” is derived from “cooking”.

Cooking is one of the oldest cultural techniques of mankind and dates back to before the deliberate use of fire. Recent studies suggest: prehistoric people already cooked food in hot springs at 90°C and prepared it for consumption.

What Happens During Cooking?

Cooking causes a chemical reaction: the cellular tissue of the ingredients is loosened, the contained protein coagulates, connective tissue gels and fats become liquid.

From a nutritional point of view, cooking releases the minerals of the ingredients and makes the food easier to digest. The cooking process has a preservative and sterilizing effect on the ingredients.
