Behold the Easy Kit, Albert and Ferran Adrià's new line of textures that are designed to take home cooking to a much more spherified, jellied and foamy place. The brothers teamed up with Guzmán Gastronomía and Solegraells on these four kits, which contain textures for Cuisine, Patisserie, Cocktail, and Spherification. "The avant-garde chefs must bring our solutions to the domestic sphere," says Albert Adrià in a press release. "Spherification is a fun technique that causes a great effect, an incredible resource for your special dishes."
The four kits include textures such as Gelly, Algin, Gluco, Xanthan Gum, Agar and more to achieve all kinds of progressive techniques. Also included in the kits are recipes for things like campari air, spherified vinegar and more, plus necessary utensils such as syringes, tweezers and spatulas. The kits, which just rolled out this month, are sold online for 70.15 euros ($92). And, yes, they will ship worldwide. Here's the release:
