Chef Adria,
We have all read of your using the ISI Whips for foams and Parmesan spaghetti. Using the Pacojet for Polvo Helado (iced powder) and other devices that are not as well known in the States such as the Thermomix and the Cocktail Master. Are there any new devices you have been working with lately that show promise? And if so, could you give us all a “little taste ” of things to come.

Thank You for your time here on the Forum

The tepannitro. It’s a plancha that instead of radiating heat it uses nitrogen. It’s here, in elTaller, in the kitchen. We’re perfecting it.

The name is a variation of tepanyaki. I don’t know if tepan means plancha, but the name sounds good, doesn’t it? :wink:

It can look like a silly thing, but you’d have to sample the results! At the end of the season, for four days, we did some custard apple blinis with coffee caviar that were something else.
