Humble beginnings in Catalonia, Spain.
Mixing traditional techniques with simple science, three-Michelin star chef Ferran Adrià began exploring modernist cuisine in the early-1990s. Since then, molecular gastronomy has taken off and found a prominent place in some of the world’s best restaurants: The French Laundry, Alinea, and The Fat Duck. But these extraordinary experiences—which thousands fight to get reservations for every year—have never had a prominent place at home. Until now.

A collection of modernist ingredients and recipes just for you.
Molecular gastronomy isn’t difficult. Some dishes only take a few minutes to make and many don’t require any special equipment, but they’re seriously impressive anyway. The problem? Modernist cuisine requires hard-to-find ingredients—the type of stuff you can’t find at your local grocery store.
