From what I've gathered it is a general purpose foaming/stabilizing agent for cold foams. Mix 100g per litre of liquid, load your siphon and cool for two hours. No idea if it also will emulsify fat for eg a vinaigrette foam.

I have just got the delivery of Proespuma cold and hot (the hot is a new product for hot foams) and a jar of Isomalt.

Does anyone have recipes, ideas etc!?

A question regarding the Isomalt, do you use only isomalt when doing crystal desserts/sugar sculpts or do you ad it to "ordinary" sugar?

you can make your own foam stabilizers.

Aerators - Xanthan, Methycellulose

Emulsifier - Arabic/Acacia

Stabilizer - Agar, kappa Carrageenan

Mouth feel - Poly Glycol, Alginate, Llambda Carrageenan

      Has anybody tried making a dark roux in a pressure cooker? Can this be done without scortching do you think? I have made roux in the oven before and started wondering about this topic.

      I really want to improve the flavor of my chicken breast so I want to try to inject brine with fat and flavors.
      I would like to try brining with some hydrocolloids. The one example I found is this: https://torontofoodlab.com/2013/08/20/meat-tenderizing-with-a-carrageenan-brine/.
      However I cannot apply that to my chicken breast because I am cooking it sous vide, so the chicken will not reach the temperature needed for the carrageenan to gel.
      I am thinking of using Methyl cellulose, first disperse in hot water, then leave it for 24 hours in the fridge, then add salt, fat and flavors and inject it.
      I am afraid that until it reaches the 50C or 60C that the Methyl cellulose needs in order to gel, the liquid will escape.
      Any ideas?

      Thanks for putting up this forum 🙂
      I would like to bake using a combination of sous vide and a conventional oven. Would it be possible to put the dough in a vacuum bag cook it sous vide at 37C for the dough to raise optimal and then put it in a conventional oven?

      Warm Onion Bavarois
      * 300g Sweet Onion purée
      * 250g Whole milk
      * 150g Whipping cream
      * 150g Chicken stock (or fresh vegetable nage, not stock cubes)
      * 3.5g Gellan gum
      * Seasoning
      Lightly grease with vegetable oil the moulds you intend to use (darioles, ramekins etc) and set to one side.
      In a pan (but not on the heat), whisk together all the ingredients.
      Place on a medium heat and whisk continuously, the mix will start to thicken slightly. Carry on whisking for a further 3-4 minutes when it has started to bubble. Then quickly pour into the greased moulds & chill.
      To reheat for serving, just place the ramekin in a pan of water and simmer gently for 8-10 mins.
