What is Molecular Gastronomy?

Molecular gastronomy or modern cuisine is a new and innovative cooking and dining experience. It utilises the tools of science and places them in the kitchen. This is done in order to explore the different possibilities within the culinary world. But what does this mean? By utilising different elements, such as, liquid nitrogen and other food chemicals, the possibility of transforming the taste, texture and composition of food can be realised. Ever heard of ‘transparent ravioli’ or ‘plum caviar’? Well, through molecular gastronomy these kinds of food are possible.
