El Bulli Sferificacion Mini-kit Time to Sferify Your Dinner Guests

[23/03/10] 

Sferificacion. Yes it’s a real word and one that opens the kitchen door on the crazy gastronomy that made Spain’s El Bulli restaurant world famous.

Regularly named the world’s top restaurant, El Bulli uses exotic ingredients to create the likes of Norway lobster gelatin, frozen parmesan air, and hot spherical asparagus egg. However, the chances of getting a seat at El Bulli are less than engineering a threesome dressed as Nody; the restaurant gets well over a million requests for the 7,000 covers it serves per annum.

So if you’re determined to show what a culinary whiz you are, buy an El Bulli Sferificacion set from Oliver Pacific and have a crack at using agar (from red algae) to make warm gelatine, calcium gluconolactate for sferificacion, or xantana (fermented corn starch) for suspending elements in liquid, as well as some pretty weird-looking tools, to create true gastronomic art. The kits aren’t cheap so you might want to practice with garnishes or amuse bouches, but you never know, you just might have the Bull’s flare for Sferificacion.
