Cookin' with Gas

During a recent trip back to MIT, I had the good fortune to be hanging around when some folks wanted to make weird food with liquid nitrogen.  The first was simple, but still pretty awesome: frozen watermelon mush.

Next was a fried egg.  Input: LN2, followed by an egg.

And then into the frying pan.  After the freezing and mixing, the egg turns out looking like dippin' dots, and the final product ended up with a really interesting texture.  Neat.

That's it for this quick post.  Hopefully I'll get back into a rhythm soonish.  Either way, here's a joke I heard from a friend.  Cheers!
Q: What did the fried eggs say to the knives and forks as they waited for the monks to start breakfast?
A: "Oh no! It's out of the frying pan and into the friar!"



Hey, it's me! I’ve been a documentary photographer for 17 yrs, software engineer for even longer, and plenty of other things in between.
