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. Seen on TVs across the country, Tom has done over 1800 live TV segments since starting on TV in 2009.

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.
