Despite what some may think, molecular gastronomy is in no way opposed to traditional cooking! On the contrary, it uses knowledge and “know-hows” from classical cuisine and seeks to go further, to open-up horizons by bringing new textures and techniques. With our kits, you will learn to master spherification, emulsification and gelification. MOLECULE-R is there to explain these molecular techniques and give you some tips to master them.
Today, the term “food additive” covers nearly 2,500 chemicals that are added to foods for specific purposes. This could be for preserving or for processing and enhancing flavour and/or colour. This list includes food colourings, stabilizers, acidifiers, preservatives, enzymes and texturing agents. It is this last class of food additives, texturing agents, that brings great pleasure to molecular gastronomy enthusiasts. Indeed, these agents help create culinary extravaganzas with unexpected surprises every time! We’ve gathered them on this page, so you can learn more!
