About this item

"This book embodies the ultimate crash course for the amateur chef and home cook in preparing food using modern scientific principles... For a reader seeking new and broader culinary horizons just come armed with a dash of patience and a pinch of scientific interest -- the results ought to be astounding."
-- Publishers Weekly

At one time revolutionary and the sole purview of dedicated expert chefs, molecular gastronomy is well established as a cuisine choice. Food aficionados who want to create it at home can now find equipment and locate the catalyst ingredients, but it's neither a bargain method of cooking nor a quick study.

This book shows the most common methods used in molecular gastronomy adapted for the home. Clear and easy-to-follow step-by-step photographs demonstrate each technique so that cooks can practice the unique skills, handle the unusual ingredients and plate the dishes. Most beneficial to home cooks, however, is that should special equipment be unavailable, the author recommends the closest domestic equivalents.

Molecular Gastronomy at Home is an outstanding practical introduction to a fascinating and delicious cooking method. It demonstrates how with clear technical guidance, numerous illustrations, achievable recipes and a generous dose of patience, home cooks can take culinary physics out of the lab and into their home kitchen.

With the first edition of Molecular Gastronomy at Home sold out, this second edition will be available for a wider audience of cooks who like to explore and learn new skills.
