Do You Like the Foam on Food Trend?

Foam on Food: Love It or Hate It?

One of the benchmarks of the molecular gastronomy is foamed food, which has gotten a frivolous rap in recent years. But one of the movement's pioneers, Wylie Dufresne, recently defended it, saying, "You're eating something rich . . . in this very light, ethereal, delicate way. I think that's a nice juxtaposition." While he admitted that many chefs were using it improperly, he added, "I just think people went after it unnecessarily," and cited ice cream and bread as foamed foods that aren't going anywhere anytime soon. Do you agree, or are you over foamed food?

I love foam, my favorite foam of all, of course, is on my daily cappuccinos!

also, it seems very trendy and unnecessary to the overall dish. IMO. maybe i'm a food snob. lol. i understand if you are in a fancy restaurant and want to add something to the texture and 'vision' of the dish but really its not necessary. the whole molecular gastronomy baffles me honestly

i've never tried it either and honestly it kind of creeps me out. it looks like soap bubbles on your food...i'm not sure i'd like it. i'd try it but just to say i tried it.

Shouldn't there be an option for "I've never tried it" ? I never even heard of this trend.. but I don't think I'd enjoy it. It looks too much like cat vomit, haha.
