Asian Molecular Gastronomy

Hello foodies, hope you’re hogging well. Today in the world of culinary arts, there is a new standard which is booming in restaurants which is “Molecular Gastronomy ”.


You all know the definition but I am going to explore on my personal experience. Gastronomy is an art with use of edible chemicals to create food. Molecular Gastronomy is a new concept which has taken the food to a whole new level. This innovation of food has been inspired from various famous chefs such as Heston Blumenthal, and it’s been a great boom on Instagram these days. There are various restaurants who are following this such as “Farzi Cafe” Gurgaon, there are various products which introduced an innovative product “Goat Cheese Stuffed Tangdi Kebab” and there is a famous restaurant named “Gaggan” which is in Bangkok, Thailand who serves ‘Progressive Indian Cuisine’.

I’ve personally been there as I’m inspired by the culinary arts very much. I went and looked over the kitchen and the restaurant as well, Gaggan has taken “Indian Cuisine” to another level. I understood the learning of gastronomy and it’s amazing that a caviar can be of strawberries as well. I actually tasted “Strawberry Caviar” which was processed by pureeing the strawberries and making jelly out of it and then processed further for caviar. There are restaurants coming up in Banglore, Mumbai and Delhi. I also tasted artificial “beer” which was made from Apple which exactly tasted like Beer. (image below)

Talking about the “Progressive Indian Cuisine” it is Indian cuisine which is being fused with other cuisines. Apart from food there are various beverages which are made from molecular gastronomy. Gaggan also innovated various dishes like “Coconut Lassi” which is served in a “Foam” form in a coconut shell. Isn’t that cool? Moreover when you taste the food, the taste is amazing on the palate, although the food is made by deconstruction or either molecular gastronomy.


I’ve tasted “Gazpacho” which is tomato based soup served cold from Spanish cuisine. It was made in a foam as well. There are cocktails such as “Screwdriver” which is made from vodka and orange and it was served under the base of dry ice so that it comes with a smoke so it looks “eye appealing” when it comes on table.
