Unleash your inner Heston BlumenthalMolecular gastronomy is where food, art and science meet to create a spectacle for your palette. In this four-hour workshop with Jozef Youssef you'll learn the basics of molecular gastronomy as outlined in his book Molecular Gastronomy at Home. The workshop will cover the theory and principles of molecular gastronomy techniques, looking at hydrocolloids, gels, foams and mousses, the science behind the techniques, the variations as well as hints, tips and tricks. Lunch, tea and coffee, and a glass of prosecco are included.
You'll also walk away with a complimentary Molecule-R Evolution kit – a do-it-yourself molecular gastronomy kit that includes all you need to experiment at home.
