Modelling dishes and exploring culinary ‘precisions’: the two issues of molecular gastronomy

  • Hervé This (a1)
Abstract

The scientific strategy of molecular gastronomy includes modelling ‘culinary definitions’ and experimental explorations of ‘culinary precisions’. A formalism that describes complex dispersed systems leads to a physical classification of classical sauces, as well as to the invention of an infinite number of new dishes
