But first, let’s demystify Punnett’s Square a bit. We’re going to make a generalised Punnett Square using food instead of alleles.
To set this up, I want you to imagine going out to eat at one of those super-trendy restaurants (Chez Punnett, of course) with lots of dishes you’ve never heard of. Your task? Order an entrée and a dessert.
|Bikini Island Shrimp in Yuca Coconut Puree||Chocolate Mink|
|Wild and Crazy Drunken Trout||103 Layers Chocolate Cake|
|Sweet Potato Gratin with Baby Pinecones||Ecuadorian Pomegranate Popsicles|
|Cornish Hen in Free Range Chicken Wrapped in Organic Turkey, Smothered
in Genetically Modified Plum Sauce
|Turkey Cream Puff Pie||Watermelon Croissant|
(Just for fun, see if you can guess which three of these recipes
actually came from Gourmet magazine).
