Inspired by the intricacies of molecular gastronomy is Molecular Matter, a new tableware collection created by Roberto Sironi and michelin-starred chef Daniel Facen. This is not your average set of dishes. Sironi and Facen looked to nature and employed the laws of science to create vessels that enhance the portioning and presentation of molecular foods – maximizing a patron’s overall experience. We are fascinated by this collection – you know we love it when our plates are just as beautiful as our food.
Molecular gastronomy is a modern cooking technique that explores the science of flavor. It seeks to investigate the physical and chemical transformations of ingredients in order to achieve better cooking outcomes. Many great chefs who have devoted themselves to this practice have transformed their kitchens into labs as they strive to widen their perceptions and constantly break down the boundaries of cooking. “I like to go to unexplored places,” says chef Daniel Facen, who sees his kitchen as his own laboratory.
This trendy collection inspired by the fusion of food and science perfectly complements molecular cuisine by supporting and enhancing the presentation of shapes, colors, and taste. The delicate tableware composed of a glazed ceramic creates a unique textured grip that mirrors the inside of a beekeeping mould, making it perfect for supporting spherifications and caramelizations common in molecular gastronomy.
The modern collection provides an improved way to experience food through sensory and stylish details. It is without a doubt that science is changing the way we cook our ingredients and the way we plate our food.
