At the sixth-annual World Science Festival, scientists and chefs gathered to hear the latest in food research including how children's acute sense of taste affects their preferences and how understanding each food's ideal cooking temperature can transform meals.

"But when you actually go out and experience the science -- in this case, that’s the food -- you get a totally different perspective on the way you think about things."
