It's a nightmare trying to sift out 'genuine' references to alchemy. We could start a prize for the silliest misuse of these words in the media, e.g.

"Everything I ate that night was wonderful, but this dish stays with me. The contrast between the tough cut of meat and the rich preparation, the simplicity of the basic ingredients, and the complexity of the final aroma -- the transformation was almost alchemical."
