    Jozef Youssef is a highly acclaimed restaurant and private dining chef. He started his career working for Michelin-starred chef Helene Darroze at the Connaught Hotel in London. He has since worked with several other renowned chefs and trained in molecular gastronomy with Heston Blumenthal. Jozef now works as a private chef in London, Dubai and Tokyo. He develops his menu concepts in his experimental kitchen called Odyssey and manages

    Molecular Gastronomy, Microgastronomy, Bistronomy, Avant Garde Cuisine, Multi-Sensory Dining all mean the same thing -- using food science to bring flavor, texture, taste and aromas to recipes in new ways.

    This book teaches the experienced home cook how to practice dozens of the most common methods used in molecular gastronomy. Clear and easy-to-follow step-by-step photographs demonstrate each technique so cooks can practice the unique skills and presentation concepts. Techniques that require special equipment are shown with their closest domestic equivalents.

    In addition to a brief history of molecular gastronomy, how it works, ingredients used and important safety rules, the book includes techniques and recipes as follow:

    • Sous-Vide -- "Under vacuum" cooking, e.g., Confit salmon with pomme puree and squid ink
    • Transglutaminase -- "meat glue" e.g., Salmon and lemon sole terrine
    • Dehydration -- e.g., Beet powder and black olive "soil"
    • Centrifugal Cooking -- e.g., Clarified watermelon cocktail
    • Evaporation -- How to make mouth-watering syrups and beverages without artificial flavorings
    • Rapid Infusion -- How to infuse flavors into liquids, e.g., Celery ice cream
    • Adding Smoke -- e.g., Smoked chocolate mousse
    • Spherification -- e.g., Sweet chili bubbles with roast duck
    • Carbonation -- How to intensify the flavors and aromas of foods
    • Foams and Airs -- e.g., Shellfish bisque with a lemongrass foam
    • Hydrocolloids (gels, gums) -- Cured salmon with cucumber jelly
    • Liquid Nitrogen -- For super-smooth sweet and savory ice creams
    • Food Pairing -- An essential skill in molecular gastronomy
    • Avant-Garde Presentation -- Inspiration and tips
    • Multi-sensory Taste Perception - The five senses in molecular gastronomy.

    Molecular Gastronomy at Home shows how with clear technical guidance, delicious and easy-to-follow recipes plus a generous dose of patience, home cooks can take culinary physics out of the lab and into their home kitchen.
