MC Spherification Kit

Item ID: 1365 []

Experience the joy of eating tiny spheres that instantly burst and saturate your palate with fresh, flavorful juice! Transforming a flavorful liquid into a spherified pearl is a hallmark of Modernist cooking, and this kit makes it easy to master the technique.

The Modernist Cuisine™ Spherification 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 spherification, and troubleshooting tips to guide novices and experienced cooks alike.

The booklet includes a recipe for Concord Grape Caviar (using store-bought fruit juice), along with eight recipe variations and serving suggestions.

The recipe and techniques are suitable for children ages eight and older.
