Ever heard of molecular gastronomy? That's the term for one of the hottest gourmet food fads and one type is known as foamed food. On "Candid Camera" hungry guests at the diner got just that... even though that's not what they ordered.
The waitress gave out a "margarita chicken salad with some foam." But when she announced that "Today's meal was actually prepared by Candid Camera," reactions were priceless.
According to The Washington Post, the trendy food fad is the symbol of all that is wrong with 'modernist' or 'molecular' cooking" "Foam is full of gas, they say, with no substance, metaphorically as well as literally. Its only function is to show that the chef is modern."
One thing's for sure... the guests at the diner weren't into it.
