Imagine biting into a spaghetti-shaped noodle that tastes of vibrant fruit juice! Transforming a flavorful liquid into a gel is a hallmark of Modernist cooking, and this kit makes it easy to master the technique.
The Modernist Cuisine Gel Noodle Kit was developed by Nathan Myhrvold and the team behind the award-winning Modernist Cuisine book series. They applied the same rigor and clear instructions to this kit as they did to their hardcover books, complete with step-by-step photos, scaling percentages, an explanation of the science behind gelling, and troubleshooting tips to guide novices and experienced cooks alike.
The booklet includes a recipe for mango-flavored gel noodles (using store-bought fruit juice), along with eight recipe variations and serving suggestions.
The recipes and techniques are suitable for children ages eight and older.
Required tools (not included): scissors, whisk, digital scale capable of 0.1 gram increments
