Keep it up Mr. Logsdon! Looking forward to your next undertaking.
This book opened my eyes to the variety of uses for my syphon, infusing oils, making foam, making sparkling cider, which turned out fabulous, how to add fizz to fruit.
Ideas about in this book and so do interesting and tasty recipes. Not just foam (or cat spit, as I once heard it called on top chef), there are a variety of ideas, gels, that take my syphon from a once in a while use space eater to a valuable and often used kitchen utensil.
There are black and white pictures.
I became interested again while reading Modernist Cuisine at Home but learned little more while building up my arms while lifting this 10 pound near useless tome. Then Amazon was kind enough to suggest this book.
It gets all those stars because it will give me enough to chew on for the next year or so and it may be enough for all time. There is basic information on the many common thickeners, frothers and emulsifiers to get you to spray out all sorts of interesting foams. He even includes a comparative chart with temperatures and other metrics. This enough to justify buying the book.
A more useful book yet would have charts and graphs that would show what happens when you increase or lower the temperature, time or concentration of this or that or what happens when you combine things. This book has recipes presented in midieval style which has you add this amount to that amount to get a third thing.without suggesting much by way of variation. Of course that would be a larger more expensive book with more pictures that only Nathan would appreciate.
