Chefs Albert & Ferran Adria of el Bulli’s Creation – 10.6 oz/300 gr, Spain.
Gelifier extracted from the cellulose of vegetables. Unlike other gelifiers, Metil (with a metilcellulose base) gelifies when heat is applied. When cold it acts as a thickener. There is a wide range of viscosity in metilcelluloses, which affects the final result of the gelification. Metil has been chosen for its great gelifying power and reliability.
Characteristics: Available in powder form. Mix cold, shaking vigorously, and leave to rest in the refrigerator until it reaches 4° C for hydration. Next apply a temperature with an interval between 40 and 60° C. When the product cools it loses gel capacity and becomes liquid.

Eines - Chefs Albert & Ferran Adria of el Bulli’s Creation – Preparation Tools, Spain.
Spherification is a new process that uses a very specific technique. For this reason, the tools used for this purpose have been subjected to numerous tests. The Eines pack contains the most useful tools for each step in spherification.
Once the desired shape and size are determined, the right tool must be chosen: Syringes are used to create drops that make spherical caviar. For larger preparations (mini-spheres, ravioli, gnocchi, balloons), Dosing Spoons must be used. Collecting Spoons are used to remove and wash the spherical preparation from the Calcic bath.

It is an emulsifier similar to oil, which means that it must first be broken down with a fatty element and then added to the watery element.
Ingredients: Monogyceride in flakes.
Characteristics: Available in flakes. Indissoluble in water. It dissolves in oil heated up to 60° C. The mixture of oil and Glice in water must be integrated slowly for the emulsion to be satisfactory.
