A : There is probably a long, complicated answer to this question, but the truth is, it is all very simple. We sell everything that both the curious chef and regular foodie need to try their hand at molecular gastronomy and impress friends, family and customers, be it additives, specialized tools or recipes.
A : Molecular gastronomy refers to a modern style of cooking, which takes advantage of innovations from the scientific discipline.
A : Well, they are! As long as you are interested in molecular gastronomy, and are able to do a few basic things such as boiling water and using a hand blender, you shouldn’t be afraid to give our products a try. They’re safe, user-friendly, and tons of fun to use.
A : Yes, molecular dishes are safe, and as for the chemicals you heard about, the truth is, they have been a part of our food and culinary traditions for centuries now, as every time you cook something, you use chemistry. Molecular gastronomy is just taking the chemistry of cooking a step further, mostly to play with textures, looks and taste. What’s more, all our additives are natural. Go take a look at our ‘Definitions’ section; you will see that there is nothing scary about this new trend, and that it is all fun and no harm.
A : Each kit includes everything your need to experiement the most popular techniques of molecular gastronomy, be it food additives, kitchen tools and step by steps recipes. All the details regarding contents and volumes included in the kits can be found in the ‘Store’ section of this website.
A : All of the additives included in the kits are also available as refills in the Store, as is our toolbox. Of course, one of the many advantages of the kits is that they include DVDs filled with great original recipes.
A : For now, all our products are French-English bilingual, and we will soon introduce Spanish and German versions of our kits.
A : If you insert your DVD in a computer and browse it, you'll find a pdf file with all the recipes in a printable format.
A : Depending on the additive, the quantity of product per sachet varies:
- Agar-agar: 1 sachet = 2g = about 3/4 tsp
- Gelatin: 1 sachet = 4g = about 2 tsp
- Calcium lactate: 1 sachet = 5g = about 1 1/2 tsp
- Sodium alginate: 1 sachet = 2g = about 1 tsp
- Soy lecithin: 1 sachet = 2g = about 1 tsp
- Xanthan gum: 1 sachet = 1g = about 1/4 tsp
Please note that is is always better to measure with a kitchen scale, more accurate than a measuring spoon.
Q : Are there any allergens/traces of allergens in your products?
A : Unfortunately, MOLECULE-R Flavors cannot guarantee that any of our additives is allergen-free.
A : To the very best of our knowledge (and we like to say we know our stuff), all of our products are vegetarian/vegan, except for our cold soluble gelatin. However MOLECULE-R Flavors cannot provide you with any sort of guarantee on this matter. For more information about additives, go take a look at our ‘Definitions’ section.
A : Unfortunately, MOLECULE-R Flavors cannot guarantee that our products are Halal/Kosher. For more information about additives, go take a look at our ‘Definitions’ section.
A : None of our additives contains alcohol, but our Cocktail R-EVOLUTION kit, as suggested by its name, is meant to help you make all sorts of alcoholic drinks, and even though in more than one of the recipes on the Cocktail DVD, alcoholic beverages can be replaced, well… the kit is still meant for the making of drinks, so maybe it is not for you. However, if you can not/will not consume alcohol, over 90% of the recipes on the Cuisine DVD (included with the Cuisine R-EVOLUTION kit) are alcohol-free.
A : We currently offer workshops for those interested in learning about molecular cuisine in the company of a chef. You can see all details about who teaches these classes, how long they are, in what exactly they consist and where they take place in the Store, where they are available to buy.
