9 Scientific Cooking Techniques

  • Опубликовано:  11 месяцев назад
  • All cooking is science: we use chemistry and physics to steam, fry, bake, or microwave almost all of our meals. However, there are some cooking methods that delve into even deeper and stranger scientific territory.

    It takes a science to make art that can appeal to all 5 senses; also you can do a reverse spherification by mixing your calcium salts into you juice/beverage and the sodium algitate into your water bath instead (so it's reversed lol), some believe it works better but I think its more unstable and tastes funny. Any thoughts?

    Meat glue is very bad bcs it's used to make random chunks of meat look like a steak for example. This means that the former outside of the meat (where most bacteria are) now is inside, where the steak is not heated properly. Yummy.

    So today I discovered that Pectinex Ultra SP-L is commercially available. For like, 9 bucks.v This is the stuff that breaks down pectin structure (like the white bitter strands on oranges) and is usually used commercially so you can have rly sweet juice or those canned lil mandarin oranges.

    Molecular gastronomy is one of my favorite cuisines I got to learn at culinary school. Unfortunately it's very expensive, not only to study but also to eat it. Most molecular gastronomy restaurants cost up to 14,000 dollars to eat there. But, the food the chefs make are a piece of art... And don't make me get started with the foams and airs. Those things are so cool and odd

    If maltodextrin has both a hydrophobic and hydrophilic side, the why isn't it an emulsifier? Shouldn't having both a hydrophobic and hydrophilic side mean that it can quite easily bind to water?
