Finally, a local source for molecular gastronomy ingredients

Inquiries for MG ingredients and equipment pop up from time to time, so I thought I'd share that the local company Powder for Texture is up and running:

They sell their products at Nella Cucina, Nella Mississauga, at Willow Cakes & Pastries (in NOTL) or online.

The owner is John Placko, who some of you may know from his Australia Day dinners or his courses at Humber College. I just took his MG desserts workshop and it was incredibly fun. 3 hours of hands on work on around 15 recipes. It's remarkable how simple many of the techniques are, once you have the right ingredients (even without things like the sous vide machine or the super fancy vacuum sealing machine). It's well worth the price, as you get to use several MG techniques and sample everything you make.

I know there is a savoury version of the workshop next week in Niagara-on-the-Lake. Not sure when the next Toronto-based workshops are, but I imagine you can sign up for announcements.
