Mix the curiosity of a billionaire mad scientist with an unlimited budget and the excellence of a master chef, and you get this. You don’t have to be a foodie to find this very cool. Cutting microwave ovens in half, distilling the essence of 25 pounds of peas into a few inches of “pea butter,” making the coolest egg mushroom omelet ever, using centrifuges to make a highly concentrated frozen banana essence bonbon covered in chocolate–that’s just some of the very “neatoooooo” stuff in this awesome, entertaining video. No, I wouldn’t pay $625 for the cookbook, but it’s fun to watch what they can do.
