Banana burrata

Just to clarify, if I were doing it I would do the interior steps just as stated by iif, and freeze. Then I would make a separate exterior solution infusing banana in something like milk or whatever, add a little creme de banane, perhaps, and then bind that with the kappa and use for dipping. Two things seem wrong about their recipe. First, the original agar gel is too thick when reheated to be a good coating medium, and second, agar, because of its properties, does not set as quickly as kappa does, and therefore it isn't as good in setting around a frozen sphere. You have to keep the sphere in the solution longer, and then it gets even gloppier. It seems elegant to be able to use the original solution in three ways, but it really isn't the best way.
