If sorcery exists in this world, I'm pretty sure Japan has already discovered it. They can't quite turn water into wine but they can turn it into dessert. That water droplet you see above? It's actually a rice cake dessert, or shingen mochi, that melts in your mouth as you eat it. It's like eating a delicate water balloon that can pop at any second for dessert. Only way more delicious.

Supposedly, the water drop dessert mochi—mizu shingen mochi—is refreshingly cool and tasty. The water in the droplet comes from the Japanese Alps and the texture is extremely delicate.

That is a wonderful blend of art and science that I would love to partake. chuckle.gif

Quote:The elasticity of the fluid gels seemed to be the key factor for maintaining a round shape. Based on this preliminary research, it seems that the spreading behavior of the sauces could be replicated by using different combinations of hydrocolloids with any sauce – not just chocolate or honey. Meaning, you can get different shapes on the mat just by changing the concentration of the gel! This experience left me with an even deeper admiration for the chefs at Alinea and their openness to serendipity.

Oh neat! I'd love to try that too! My sister lived in Japan for a while, I'll have to ask her if she tried that.

Damn Octo, what a great idea for a new sexual edible pleasure body spread - with chocolate flavour added, of course. drool.gif

On a scale from 1 to 10 I'd say

Quote:“This mizu shingen mochi from Kinseiken in Hokuto City is transparent and delightfully soft. The jelly is made from underflow water from Mount Kaikoma, and has a pleasant natural sweetness. Add the rich kinako powder and brown sugar syrup and it goes incredibly smoothly down your throat. The taste is really amazing.”

The recipe might as well call for unicorn tears. panic.gif

I think the vodka jell-o shots we made is about as close as I get to making this.
