I’m not that much of a cook. I rarely make anything from scratch and tend to stick with food that comes from a box or a bag for the most part. I can see some cool factor to the new Molecular Cuisine Starter Kit that ThinkGeek has just started offering though.
The starter kit comes with chemicals and implements you need to craft up some crazy edible items like spaghetti made from tomato soup and other even stranger creations. The kit has enough chemicals and stuff to make 50 different dishes.
You can make edible foams and all sorts of odd things. The kit has a syringe, pipettes, silicone tubing, a slotted spoon, measuring spoons and a DVD with 50 recipes. This sounds really complex, check out the video to see the kit in action.
