About Tom

What happens when you mix growing up cooking for a big family, world travel, and a LOVE of food? You get me, Chef Tom Woodbury, and a tribute to the science of cooking.

I’ve always been interested in understanding the science of food. When I was 6 years old, I “experimented” with peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, playing with the ingredients until I made the PERFECT sandwich. When I was in 4th grade I did my science fair experiment on the impacts of differing levels of baking powder and determined that more isn’t always better. Understanding the way that food performs at a chemical, biological, and molecular level has always been a passion.

My entire objective is to teach you, the viewer, how to make delicious, fresh and easy meals, with a hearty dose of fun, technique, and a little science.

It is my hope that the knowledge you gain from watching will give you the courage and skills to surpass the recipes I teach, and go on to develop your own. Watch for me on ABC 4, and ShopNBC.
