Looks like a beer, dosen’t it?

but it’s really pinaple juice and rum over ice topped with a coconut foam…the first foam concocted in my new iSi whipper!

A trip to Central Market…

Led to a little four course meal…it’s not a big deal…really, it’s not…

 

Break down for a closer look…

 

Apple and Onion salad with Honey Mustard.

 

Rainbow Chard cooked with smoked hamhock. On the right side of the plate are pickled green beans.

 

Heirloom Tomato Panzanella Salad. Sous Vide Pork Porterhouse (topped with brulee of BBQ rub) over Saffron Risotto.

 

Wonders of extraction: Pressure

Wonders of extraction: Pressure.

Check out this awesome technique for quickly infusing liquids (water, ALCOHOL!!!!!, or Oil) with unique flavors…the process literally takes 60 seconds!

Reading the article above was enough to send me over the purchasing edge for a iSi whipper I’ve been wanting…I got a thermo whip which will allow me to do both hot and cold foams/espumas…but this infusion method can be done in a normal “cold-only” whipper…about $40 from your local kitchen store.

My first go was toasted coconut Vodka…shots started off tasting like ordinary vodka, but right at the end…BAM! Toasted Coconut flavor explosion!

You’ll like this one Steph!
