I'm a sucker for gimmicks and gadgets - and I like fun stuff too. Therefore, I couldn't resist buying a "modern gastronomy kit" from Amazon. This contains lots of little pots of chemicals eg, calcium lactate. sodium alginate, ultratex, etc, etc, as well as tubes, a syringe, etc. Well, this is all very exciting but I'm not sure where to start. I've searched for relevant books, of course, but haven't yet found exactly what I need. Jason Logsdon seems to be a prominent name in this field but I wasn't very inspired by his recipes. Can anyone recommend a modernist cuisine cooking course for beginners or even suggest some ways of how I might get started? Thanks in advance.
