What's the term for this texture, surface effect...?

16 posts in this topic

What is the term for this texture? My mind wants to say "fractured", but that doesn't quite seem right.cheesecake-c.jpgice cream.jpgIMG_0552 (1280x960).jpg

Ok, 'Delamination'

Failure, fracture.

The bottom shot says 'brush me !'

His (Ragdoll - growing out from a shave) fur always looks like that, even when brushed. :blink:

I like "delamination", thanks!

Efflorescent? Efflorescence (which means "to flower out" in French)

I'm gonna throw out 'feathered'...


So we finish the eighteenth and he's gonna stiff me. And I say, "Hey, Lama, hey, how about a little something, you know, for the effort, you know." And he says, "Oh, uh, there won't be any money. But when you die, on your deathbed, you will receive total consciousness."

So I got that goin' for me, which is nice.

I've heard it referred to as a "random scaling effect" that is, forming scales, thick and thin, on the outer surface as the material is manipulated.

"Ragged" is the term used in pastries.

The world belongs, however, to those who can look at the glass and say: What's up with this glass? Excuse me? Excuse me? This is my glass? I don't think so. My glass was full! And it was a bigger glass!" Terry Pratchett

None of these seem quite right. There are no layers in ice cream to delaminate, so that can't be it.

An efflorescence is an out-blooming, like a tuft of mold on a cheese, which isn't quite right.

The fractures or whatever they are called come from the serving spoon/knife being cold enough to partialy adhere to the cold ice cream and tear it as it moves through. A hot spoon wouldn't do this, nor would warmish ice cream.

I suggest that we name it after you...its the Lame Username Effect.

I can't say no. I've always been fascinated with eponymous terms. Bovie, Alyce clamp, Dyson sphere... How fun to have my own that applies to ice cream and cheesecake.

It occurred to me that I should move this to a pastry thread. If pastry chefs call it "ragged", I am content.

      I'm posting it here on the grounds that national Food Guides are, by their nature, intended to be used as references. 
       
      Many of you will have read today's news stories about the proposed changes to Canada's food guidelines. All of the stories I read mentioned that Health Canada was soliciting input from the general public, as well as health/food industry professionals. None of them, alas, actually gave a link to the "consultation" page at Health Canada's website. For those who wish to weigh in, here it is:

      I've been eying this book since I heard about its upcoming release. For me, a cocktail book with a French slant is a hugely appealling. I flipped through it at my local bookstore and was compelled to buy it when I saw a recipe calling for Byrrh, along with a few re-interpreted classics. The recipes are not overly complex and generally don't call for esoteric ingredients. If you have Sam Ross' Bartender's Choice app, it's in the same vein but with a definite French (and international) touch, with recipes calling for things like Suze, Armagnac or Japanese whisky.
       
      Measurements are given in milliliters and ounces, and were probably conceived in metric so they can be a bit unusual sometimes, but this is not a big deal at all. Each recipe is provided with a little background about its creation or general concept, which I always find the most interesting part of these types of books.
       
      The first thing I mixed was the Byrrh cocktail of course. It had quite a few other ingredients, but luckily I had everything already on hand.
       
      Handsome Jack (Chris Tanner) with Rittenhouse straight rye, Pierre Ferrand 1840, Aperol, Byrrh, green Chartreuse, maple syrup, Angostura and Peychaud's bitters.
       
      As indicated in the notes, it is slightly on the sweet side but it has a slight bitterness that compensates for that (from the Byrrh and Aperol). The flavor is deep and complex. There is almost like a chestnut note with the maple syrup and cognac, and a nice kick from the rye. A very good fall/winter drink.

      The team over at Modernist Cuisine announced today that their next project will be an in-depth exploration of bread. I personally am very excited about this, I had been hoping their next project would be in the baking and pastry realm. Additionally, Francisco Migoya will be head chef and Peter Reinhart will assignments editor for this project which is expected to be a multi-volume affair.

      Another great article from the great Harold McGee. "The Science of Herbs and Spices" on Lucky Peach.
       
      Fascinating as ever.
       
      Now I just need to find the Chinese for "chitosan".
