    I'm saying that because foam was a rage a few years ago but always reminded me of regurgitate. Sorry if I offended

    Learning new techniques no matter if people think they're outdated is how you learn.

    Here is a link for you to start with, @qwerten200

    I understand that learning is how you learn :) If he/she wants to, he/she can have at it.. What vote do I get? Was merely saying that it was a trend that I hoped had died. Nothing more.

    Definately worth knowing how to do, more important to know when to use!  There are a bunch of ways to foam liquids, each have there own qualities.  The trend Lauren brought up was a dark time...lots of people just using foams for the sake of it.  Mind you, lots of things go that way, coloured oils, fried herbs, tuilles, all have been used a little too much when they were hot.  

    My advice is not to think of opprotunities to use foams, but keep the technique in your back pocket for those times that a plate needs a little hint of something but you don't want to bulk up the dish with something else that needs to be eaten.  

    Also, dont discount Lauren's reaction to their appearance either.  Many people associate the look of espumas with, well, something other than sea foam, lets say.  Fair or not, its a thing to keep in mind.
