Not only is cooking a fun and creative outlet, but there’s also a science to preparing dishes that are as visually stunning as they are delicious. With molecular methods, you can transform the textures, tastes, and composition of different types of food by focusing on the physical and chemical processes that arise while cooking. The molecules are manipulated in new and innovative ways to yield flavourful, functional, and artistic results, which are perfect for showcasing during Christmastime festivities!
Getting started with molecular cooking
Before you get started, make sure you have a molecular cooking kit, which can be purchased online. These kits come with pipettes, slotted spoons, moulds, syringes, food additives, and more! Molecular cooking will feel like an edible science class! Soon, you’ll be making mind-blowing dishes that will dazzle your family and friends. We promise it will be more fun than chemistry class!
Check out our recipes below that are a great activity to do with the kids to keep them busy during the holiday season! So, put on your lab coat – or, in this case, your apron! – and put this revolutionary technique to the test.
