Brian Steel has a Cordon Bleu Master’s Degree in Gastronomy, and more than a decade’s worth of knowledge and experience with modernist cuisine, its foundations and techniques. Brian’s Molecular Gastronomy expertise is now highly sought after by both chefs and home cooks alike. He has collaborated globally in this field, and regularly consults with chefs and restaurateurs to help in the development of new dishes with a modern twist.
His classes will provide you with the foundational knowledge and skills to create such things spherifications, hot gels, flavoured noodles, soils / powders, and hot and cold foams. This will provide you with the confidence to explore what is an exciting area of cooking, which simply centres on a better understanding of both method and ingredients.
No matter what the approach, from a simple braise to a highly complex molecular dish, Brian’s basic philosophy is the same: it needs to taste fantastic.
