Chef Homaro Cantu: Sneak Peek

In the words of Chef Homaro Cantu, "a molecular gastronomist is really just someone who explores the world of science and food."  Cantu is a chef who uses tools you wouldn't ordinarily find in a kitchen – sonifiers, lasers, and super conductors to name a few.

To save paper, Cantu serves his customers with edible menus.  And have you ever 'flavor-tripped?'  When experimenting in his two Chicago restaurants, Moto and ING, the real thrill for him is to make "something impossible. Creating something that shouldn't be."

    Ferran Adria is the man, everyone else is just an imposter. Even Adria has walked away from this Molecular stuff.

    This program on Homaro Cantu was a big dash of hope for our food industry. Where does one at home get the miracle berry? Could there be a cookbook coming soon? This man is so needed and I appreciate hearing about him. Thanks!

    Rename Cantu's restaurant The Emperor's New Clothes? Or The Gullible Gourmet?
