Molecularly Delicious!

The kitchen is your bubbling laboratory, and you—with your cookbook and pipettes in hand—are the resident science genius and master chef rolled into one!

This deluxe Molecular Gastronomy set contains everything adventurous foodies need to concoct extraordinary feats of edible science. First, there's the hardbound recipe book, with detailed instructions for concocting 40 different palate pleasers, from cocktails to desserts and everything in between. There are 9 different food additives that you will use to transform familiar ingredients into jellies, foams and beads. And finally, there are 6 food-grade laboratory tools, from syringes to a silicone mold, to help you make the magic happen. A great gift for foodies or a family project, this set turns food preparation into an ongoing culinary adventure. Made in Canada, China and Brazil.

          Comments about DELUXE MOLECULAR GASTRONOMY KIT WITH BOOK:

          Purchased for as a Christmas activity for all the foodies staying with us for the holiday. I expected to be able to create the majority of the recipes since this was the "Deluxe" kit. Unfortunately, many of the recipes call for agents/elements not included with the set. Most recipes reference a sachet as a unit of measure but, the set comes with tins filled with loose product (no sachets). The addition of a gram measuring device would have solved that issue. Unfortunately, only a ml scoop was included.

            This was a birthday gift from my foodie wife and, frankly, it turned out to be as much of a present for myself as for her. We are both huge foodies, and while molecular gastronomy was something we had tried and enjoyed in restaurants, we somehow had yet to experiment with it at home. This was the perfect way to start. We loved that the book was not only a recipe book, but contained chapter after chapter of food science as well as lots of tips & tricks. We were also very pleased that it came with generous amounts of food additives and a "toolbox" with utensils we definitely wouldn't have had at home! To top it off, the actual box looks spectacular, and everything is beautifully packaged.

            Since customers love our Molecular Gastronomy and Mixology kits, we're excited to give this deluxe edition a try. Would you experiment with it in your kitchen?

            If this isn't too expensive it would b a nice replacement for a coffee table book gift. A conversation piece maybe more than practical.

            Sounds good but what would be the price for this. I wouldn't pay more than $ 14.00.

            Only because it's not artisan from the states.

            This makes cooking hard work.

            I would try it or give it as a gift to some of my foodie friends.

            It's just a fad.

            My guess is there would be a select few who would really enjoy this, but not for most people.

            Great as a gift for serious foodies.
