The Science of Food:
In this session, children will learn different Molecular Gastronomy techniques that utilise a range of fresh fruits and vegetables in amazing ways. (Note: SA Only)
This incursion allows children to break down nutrition through science; guaranteed to be an incursion that students will never forget!
Children will learn to make:
Spherical yolks: This spherical yolk is made using a basic spherification technique and is based on a simple puree. Originally a creation of Ferran Adria, and first introduced at el Bulli in 2003. Children will be entranced by the magic; the skin dissolves in the mouth instantly releasing the contents of the 'yolk'.
Caviar: A perfect sphere with an almost imperceptible membrane; these caviar explode in the mouth! The original spherification; discovered in the US in the 50s and perfected by Ferran Adria.
Noodles: Be amazed at the molecular noodles; made from actual fruit and vegetable juice (and with a little help from the ocean)! These jelly noodles can be eaten hot or cold and children can really let their imaginations run wild!
Harry Potter Potions Class
Put away your parchments and gather around the cauldron. It’s time to learn the ancient art of potion-making in this Harry Potter-inspired class, that is lead by Professor Sillius Snape.
Students will then learn how to conjure up slime, magically inflate a balloon and create dragon’s milk fireworks. To add to the fun, all ingredients come labelled just like they would be at Hogwarts, including ‘acromantula venom’ and ‘bubotuber pus’. This is a highly interactive session that will capture the imagination of all primary school aged children.
