Ingredients for Molecular Gastronomy

4 posts in this topic

Does anyone know of a place in Ottawa or the Ottawa area where I can find the ingredients I need for molecular gastronomy? So far, I have been able to find a few things but the more "chemically" things as I think of them as, I have been unable to find. If anyone can give me some pointers, I'd be grateful. Or, if you know of reliable mail order sources, I'd be happy with that too. Thank you.

Depends on what you are looking for, honestly. ModernistPantry.com ships internationally for pretty reasonable prices, and they sell just about everything in small to medium portions (like, good for a dozen or so servings, rather than 2 kilo restaurant packages).

Homebrew supply houses also sell a lot of the stuff that is used - I think there is a DeFalco's in Ottawa? Any of them will have things like clarifying agents, calcium salts, etc.

I get my ingredients from Modernist Pantry. Great service and they have a wide range of merchandise. They use US postal service which works well to Canada.

Thank you Dexter and Okanagancook. Yes, there is a Defalco's here and I will see what they have and as you both pointed out, I can order from Modernist Pantry. However, if any more locals want to chime in with suggestions, I'm all ears (or rather, eyes).
