Better Baking Through Math (Or The Obverse)

How-To-Bake-Pi.png
Basic Books
/

Despite what it may sound like on the radio, How to Bake Pi is NOT a cookbook.  Or is it?

True, there are recipes in the book, but Eugenia Cheng's version of lasagna teaches us more about the number five than cooking technique. 

So it's really a math book for people who are not math experts... but can come to appreciate it more. 

Professor Cheng joins us with highlights.
