Molecular Gastronomy

Molecular gastronomy is a subdiscipline of food science that seeks to investigate, explain and make practical use of the physical and chemical transformations of ingredients that occur while cooking, as well as the social, artistic and technical components of culinary and gastronomic phenomena in general. Molecular gastronomy is a modern style of cooking, which is practiced by both scientists and food professionals in many professional kitchens and labs and takes advantage of many technical innovations from the scientific disciplines.

Agar Powder 200g Canister by Red Spoon Company

Agar Powder 200g Canister by Red Spoon Company

Agar is a gelatinous substance derived from seaweed and is widely used as a vegetarian alternative to animal based gelatines and for its amazing setting and hold capabilities. Agar is a low calorie ingredient offering a short and breakable texture in the mouth, but used in other products such as ice cream can create a smooth mouth feel. Highly acidic or alkaline bases can affect the gelling ability of agar agar with foods such as citrus, strawberries and passionfruit for example may require higher amounts of agar agar. While other ingredients such as fresh figs, kiwi fruit, mango, paw paws, papaya, pineapple contain enzymes that will break down the gelling capacity of Agar.

Building a Meal: From Molecular Gastronomy to Culinary Constructivism

Building a Meal: From Molecular Gastronomy to Culinary Constructivism

An internationally renowned chemist, popular television personality, and bestselling author, Hervé This heads the first laboratory devoted to molecular gastronomy—the scientific exploration of cooking and eating. By testing recipes that have guided cooks for centuries, and the various dictums and maxims on which they depend, Hervé This unites the head with the hand in order to defend and transform culinary practice.

With this new book, Hervé This's scientific project enters an exciting new phase. Considering the preparation of six bistro favorites—hard-boiled egg with mayonnaise, simple consommé, leg of lamb with green beans, steak with French fries, lemon meringue pie, and chocolate mousse—he isolates the exact chemical properties that tickle our senses and stimulate our appetites. More important, he connects the mind and the stomach, identifying methods of culinary construction that appeal to our memories, intelligence, and creativity. By showing that the creation of a meal is as satisfying as its consumption, Herve This recalibrates the balance between food and our imaginations. The result is a revolutionary perspective that will tempt even the most casual cooks to greater flights of experimentation.
