I did not do very well in my science classes in high school, but I am completely fascinated by molecular gastronomy. The idea of incorporating science and chemistry into cooking is very exciting, but the whole premise freaked me out. The premise of molecular gastronomy is cooking while chemically and physically transforming the food. Very cool! I wanted to give it a try, but never knew where to start. It always seemed like something that you learned in culinary school.
Well, Molecule-R has created molecular gastronomy kits for the home cook. It has everything you need to get started. There are a few different kits, but the one that is perfect to enter this world of cooking is the Cuisine R-Evolution.
Here is the info on this kit:
