Program: 
Date: 
Thursday, March 27, 2008 - 4:52pm

 Writer, journalist and editor JONAH LEHRER has a new book about artists of the 19th Century whose works anticipated the discoveries of 20th Century science. Tonight on Inquiry we discuss how legendary French master chef Auguste Escoffier, inventor of veal stock and Peach Melba, discovered the chemistry of “deliciousness” and how novelist George Eliot got her heart broken and then wrote about the biology of freedom. Tune in for a discussion both lively and totally unexpected. Lehrer’s book is PROUST WAS A NEUROSCIENTIS
