One of the new things that have been inspiring to work with and interesting as well is the Anti Griddle from Poly Science. It is currently on loan from a good friend. It has definitely inspired me to purchase one. It has although seemingly a small window of usage, it has limitless possibilities within that realm. We plan to use this as a marketing tool for our banquet operations, a very integral and interactive component for our chef's table and for special signature hors d'oeuvres in a progressive state...which with some thought provoking adaptation, will make it's way into the upcoming Foie Gras Guest Chef's Dinner at Rover's that I will be cooking at next month. It is a concept that reverses the normal act of cooking on a griddle somewhat, in that it freezes, rather than cooks by heat. It has as you can see, a flat frozen surface that allows one to produce a frozen exterior while maintaining a creamy or semi-custardy interior. It makes for a unique and exciting textural experience. We are by no means at the end of our journey with experimentation and flavor explorations. This is only the beginning.
