2nd Annual Liquid Nitrogen Ice Cream Social

Molecular Gastronomy

The Liquid Nitrogen Ice Cream Social Returns! But this time with way more science!

Balsamic vinegar and key lime caviar? Carbonated fruit? Limes that taste like candy?

What is this madness?

Have no fear. Let LA Makerspace welcome you to the world of molecular gastronomy, where the worlds of cuisine and chemistry collide into some sort of enigmatic burrito of science wonder.

Join us to learn about novel techniques in the field of molecular gastronomy while sampling such delicacies as liquid nitrogen ice cream and miso jelly. As you go from station to station you'll learn about the science behind you food; and of course like any good scientist you'll be able to test the results.
*Caviars - Balsamic vinegar, key lime, miso soup
* Liquid nitrogen deserts - Milk / Coconut milk based cryogen ice cream
* Taste tripping - Try a fruit extract that makes sour things taste sweet!
* Carbonated fruit - No really, you can make bubbly fruit. Bring cut up fruit in a container with a tight lid. For e.g. Nalgene containers work very well.

    A Message from LA Makerspace:
    Good day to you afficianados of molecular gastronomy. For the carbonated fruit station please bring a water bottle with a screw top, such as a Nalgene water bottle for camping. These are the best containers to pressurize and depressurize the fruit safely.

    I'll see you all there later today, and please let me know if you have any questions.

      Everything except the dairy ice cream. We'll be doing vegan ice cream with coconut cream as well though.

    I'd love to bring my 2.5 year-old niece. Do you think the social/food would be appropriate for that age?

      Don't let her try the miracle berries. She will eat all kinds of things that might hurt her tender young mouth if she does. They make everything taste sweet, even if it's spicy or acidic. Even adults make that mistake and wind up with sores afterwards.

      Carbonated fruit would be fine for her. Bring sliced watermelon, it works very well. So do grapes but you have to slice them in half first.
