Event Outline

Welcome to the Virtual Molecular

Ferran Adrià Head chef and founder of the world renowned ElBulli restaurant in Spain is considered one of the best chefs in the world.  Ferran started a gastronomic revolution that inspired modern chefs such as Heston Blumenthal to create magical touches to dishes by combining natural ingredients used in the consumer food industry with fine dining cooking and the results were spectacular.  Engage in the new generation of virtual team building activities, molecular cooking is where the classical chef meets the Modern chef.   Inspire innovation and creativity to the highest level in this magical team activity.

Event Outline

Guests will re-create a molecular inspired gastronomy meal incorporating classical and modern techniques.

Our professional chef will present a variety of techniques to add the wow factor into their dishes, hot gels and spheres will redefine what you thought you knew about cooking.   The pioneering techniques are quick to master as long as guests adhere to instruction and stick to the rules.  Once guests have had boot camp training from our chef, guests then must replicate the dishes demonstrated and design a signature dish or technique to include in their dinner. Dine like Einstein and bring your cooking to life.
