You’ll find out how to make airs, false caviars, spherifications, sands and powders using ingredients like maltosec, zorbit, alginate and calcium lactate and many more. You’ll discover how to use a syphon properly with the help of a professional chef who will share top tips to recreate these dishes at home. What’s on the menu will depend on the fresh, seasonal ingredients available but could include 2-3 of the following:
The recipes made are inspired by those found in Michelin-starred restaurants like Tickets, ABAC and Akelarre in Spain, as well as the three Michelin-starred Osteria Francescana, in Italy.

Monica is the founder of Cooking It. She was born in Barcelona but has called Bristol home for almost 30 years. Monica grew up around food and could regularly be found in the kitchen of her grandparents’ restaurant, soaking up all the flavours and recipes - so much so she still loves making the tapas recipes she learnt as a child. She returns to Barcelona often to carry on discovering new recipes in her family’s restaurants and patisseries. When Monica isn’t sharing her cooking know-how, you’ll find her enjoying wine with friends and feeding people - often her four daughters and their friends.
