1.4 CHEMICAL SCIENCES
This article summarizes the activities of molecular gastronomy (MG) in Ireland since the scientific discipline was first introduced in the country. MG has been developing over the last five years,
however, the authors of this article have been trying to establish a strong MG infrastructure in Ireland. Indeed, a lot of work still needs to be done, but public interest and positive perceptions of
“chemistry” have increased very quickly; consequently, there is great potential for further development. Indeed, we can now say
that MG has crossed the Rubicon in Ireland.
