Create gastronomical delights Heston would be proud of, with these Molecular home kits.
If you love entertaining your friends then gone are the days when a nice quiche and a bottle of rose will do. We’re now in an age where Heston Blumenthal and co have taken gastronomy to another level, and whilst you might think you haven’t got a hope in hell of recreating such delights at home, you’re wrong.
Step forward Molecular. They say “Arising from the fusion of food science with culinary arts, molecular gastronomy is a gourmet trend whose artisans embrace innovation in order to create dishes that are truly multi-sensorial experiences. This cuisine is not at all opposed to the great culinary traditions; instead, it builds on past achievements and broadens the horizons by using resolutely modern techniques and ingredients. A new culinary era has arrived and is now accessible to amateur chefs!”
So what’s the deal here, exactly? Well moleculargastronomy.com sell all kinds of sets – and cookbooks – which allow you to bring a bit of chemistry/wizardry to your food and drink. For example, with the Molecular mixology kit you can create burst-in-your-mouth cocktail spheres and drinks topped with beautiful, airy foams into your mixology routine, all thanks to plant-based additives and a few specialized but user-friendly tools. The set includes a booklet and DVD come packed with information and recipes designed to have you emulsifying and spherifying liquids (whether boozy or not!) in no time. Go on: get mixing! Incredibly, the set only costs $49.95, making this a fantastic purchase for yourself or a great gift for a friend.
With the Molecular Gastronomy kit, you can impress your guests with spectacular dishes such as mint caviar beads that burst in the mouth, chocolate spaghetti, lemon foam or tzatziki spheres!
This do-it-yourself molecular gastronomy kit includes all you need to experiment at home with the molecular techniques seen on Top Chef and in high-end restaurants, but without the celebrity chef price tag!
This all-encompassing kit includes four pre-measured food additives, five specialised molecular tools as well as a 50-recipe DVD that makes molecular gastronomy easy and accessible to all foodies. Again, at only $49.95 this is a fantastic purchase, and it’s all packaged up making it look expensive, contemporary and ideal as a gift.
