Eat Up! Don't Play With Your... Fire and Water?
November 19, 2009 11:58 AM   Subscribe

Playing with Fire and Water is a blog by a freelance chef who creates some of the most interesting and delicious looking food creations. The best part? The accompanying science behind it and recipes. Amateur chefs and food nerds, eat your heart out.

The site's introductory blurb: Cooking, elementally, is controlling heat and moisture. The great cooks are masters of fire and water. Me, I'm still playing...welcome to my playground. And play she does: Frosting a cake inside out, explaining the chemical connection between bananas and black currants, a caramel corn donut.

Awesome, but I need to eat before I read any more of this because it looks like I'm going to be sitting here for a while.

Wow, this is a beautiful find. A lot of these recipes are pretty simple, too. Lovely.

These should totally be re-named Valdez Wings.

Great find!

She's a very good photographer/sculpter who reminds me of Andy Goldsworthy, but none of it whets my appetite. It's probably impossible to do better than this.
