Play With your Food!

What do you get when you combine food, chemistry and art? You get to deconstruct any dish, to change the look and feel of any ingredient, to impress dinner guests, and to take your tastebuds on an adventure--also known as molecular gastronomy!

Turn your kitchen into a food laboratory with this how-to kit that teaches you how to transform liquids, like honey, into jelly-like cubes, gelify chopped produce into flavor-packed beads, or even morph melted chocolate into a delicate powder or spaghetti-like strands. You're only limited by your imagination! So go ahead, play with your food!

Includes instructional DVD. Click here to see a complete list of the included tools and ingredients. Materials come from Canada, the USA, Belgium and China. Assembled in Canada.

Check out the gift lab of the Molecular Gastronomy Kit on our blog!

      My 12 year old grandson has been cooking for over two years. He had fun demonstrating his skills at making noodles. He messed up the first batch by using too much water but eventually was successful and proud.

      Comments about MOLECULAR GASTRONOMY KIT - CUISINE:

      I used it for a project with molecular gastronomy, specifically spherification. Even though I wasn't cooking something, it worked great and the directions were simple. Unfortunately, you will have to order more chemical packets because the kit only provides you with a few to start out. That being said, this product is wonderful!

      Service and delivery comments:

      I got it in a few days! It was pretty fast.

        We have not made anything with the kit yet but we are excited to give it a try. My husband brews his own beer and loves making things out of seemingly nothing. He loves the science behind cooking and baking and I knew this kit would be perfect. We are looking forward to having some friends over and giving some recipes a try!
