  11. you can buy it from zeke freeman at rogers international, great company, they also have the new iberico products
  12. you could use adria's croquant technique......... just place a piece of croquant over the ice cream and heat it with a blow torch, the croquant will take on the shape of the ice cream... also dani garcia has caramelized ice cream in his book.... he uses gellan to form a shell, although it doesn't get crispy

    here is a quick breakdown for dow's methocels the are catagorized by types.... There are five types of dow methocels Type SGA Type A Type E Type F Type K Each type has a different gelling temperature. Each type has a different grade with various viscosities. The SGA METHOCEL gels between 38-44 degrees C The A METHOCEL gels between 50-55 degrees C The E METHOCEL gels between 58-63 degrees C The F METHOCEL gels between 62-68 degrees C The K METHOCEL gels between 70-90 degrees C The amount of heat that will be applied to the final product will determine the type of methocel that you want to use..... For instance if you are doing a "noodle" that is going to be added to hot water, you will need to use the SGA150, it gels really fast....If you are "whipping" something that needs to be heated for a longer period of time on the stove you would want to use an E or an F..... hope this helps and spawns more questions and experimentations cheers

  20. charleston, sc is a great city to get your feet wet in...........lots of great restaurants to choose from and charleston is a very nice place to live.... we are always accepting interns at Mccrady's cheers
  21. Sean can you give any more examples on how you use this, you would just add a flavouring like carrot juice and methocell and whip while you heat? Can you give more details ← use a methocel with a higher gelling temperature at .8 percent or so depending on the liquid.....follow the dispersion/hydration instructions and hold until ready to serve... when you are ready to serve heat the liquid on the stove and whip with a hand blender with a whisk attachment while you are heating the liquid....as it heats it will stabalize the bubbles and form a very dense foam similar to a meringue
  22. methocel makes great eggless, hot meringues...just add the methocel and whip while you are heating
  23. ouch............it will be missed
