Molecular gastronomy is a Discipline of Food Science that make practical use of the physical and chemical transformations of ingredients that occur while cooking. These Filipino dishes is amazingly presented to us by Chef Russel. Other Chefes called the technique as Culinary Physics or Experimental Cuisine.
