Spherified Green Eggs and Ham

  This sounds like an awesome recipe to try. I’m still extremely interested in eating at a molecular gastronomy restaurant, but with the proper kitchen the recipe below would be worth a try. Spherification is a really interesting concept that takes some sort of liquid and converts it into jelly balls with a thing skin [...]

There isn’t enough selection in Thailand to even think about how to pair your meals anyway. I’m envious when I walk into a supermarket in [...]

Cheeseburger cocktail

This cocktail recipe sounds really interesting, seems really difficult, and is really weak. Seriously, only one ounce of rum in all of that! It’s too complicated for me to make, but obviously adjustments will be needed. Liquid cheeseburgers? Check it out | HamptonRoads.com | PilotOnline.com.
