2009_02_ferran.jpgFrom a piece on Ferran Adria: "When a friend gave him a canister of nitrous oxide (the same propellant used in Reddi-wip) as a gift, he played around to find out what he could do with it. The result was culinary foam..." Questions: who gives their friend nitrous oxide as a gift, and who, upon receiving nitrous, turns it into foam instead of doing whippets? Also in this article: Harvard physicists are going to put their effort into making a hot ice cream that doesn't melt. This is what science is now. [Harvard Mag]
