New Molecular Gastronomy

WHEN: Tues, May 10, 2011  |  11am - 1pm
WHERE: Cal Poly, Food Science Lab

Windows on the Water’s Pastry Chef Thomas Drahos and Sous Chef Darrell Janes will be conducting a demonstration on new molecular gastronomy at Cal Poly on Tuesday May 10th.  This demonstration will include a full power point presentation and many different molecular demonstrations.  Among these there will be fruit spaghetti, watermelon spheres, beer foam, mint caviar, dehydrated lime rocks and caramel powder.

The demonstration will be held in the food science lab between 11am and 1pm.  The purpose of the demonstration is to open the eyes of young intellectuals to the possibilities of what can be done with the products and technology that are readily available today.  The power point presentation will be an explanation of the history and future of new molecular gastronomy.  Thomas Drahos and Darrell Janes will be talking about the application for the restaurant industry and also about the effects and response of the consumers.  They hope to create excitement and a new movement for the Central Coast.
