I would love to try some of these, but I don't know if I'd like them any more than I like that gum that has liquid in the middle. I guess I like my food to have it's "proper" texture.

I ate items at his restaurant where he used this technique to make little tiny peas out of pea juice and larger melon balls from melon juice and gelatin. They're totally amazing.

"In his more recent dishes, Adria has refined the technique to contain solids and encapsulated individual mussels in a soft skin of brine filled with warm mussel liqueur." Gross.

I adore Jose Andres, my husband and I often eat at his restaurant Cafe Atlantico here in Washington, DC. If anybody is in the area, I highly recommend it. He does all sorts of "spherical" foods, such as conch fritters, with a liquid conch-chowder center. They're amazing!
