Caviar a la Revolucion
18 Dec 2014
A recipe to make cheap caviar for the masses . Save the Sturgeon !
1.The basis is molecular gastronomy .
See Appendix A
Caviar is essentially a strong fish flavour , with salt in a capsule . The “caviar” uniqueness is identical to white chocolate .
2. The Recipe :
2.1 The Capsules are pasta rice . (100g)
2.2 Grated white chocolate (10 g)
2.3 Fish oil (20 g)
2.4 Neutral alcohol (vodka or cane 43% alcohol , 57% water ) :
Pasta absorbs 75% of it’s weight in water , hot or cold .
We need enough vodka to supply half of it .
Vodka = 100x0.75x0.5 / 0.57
= 66 g
About 3 tots of 25ml each .
But this is enhanced during making of caviar : http://www.ifis.org/resources/features/sustainable-caviar-production-save-our-sturgeon!/
4% to 6%
About a tsp per 100g pasta rice .
2.6 Optional :
Colour : Turmeric (2 g) , ginger , pepper . The last two are adjuvants .
Taste : Chili , amarula , etc
2.7 Method :
2.7.1 Mix everything except the white chocolate together and stand in the fridge for about 12 hours .
What happens : The oily fragrances dissolve into the alcohol . This then gets absorbed into the pasta.
Cold pasta absorbs cold water just as well as hot water . Its just slower .
But we do not want to lose the volatiles .
2.7.2 After 12 hours , drain and dust with the grated white chocolate and microwave until pasta rice is cooked .
About 30-60 seconds per 100 g . But taste it and adjust cooking time accordingly .
If turmeric had been added , you will have a bright red caviar . Hence the name .
If Saffron : yellow caviar . Etc .
Adding a gel from agar or the pulp of the granadilla will give a more exciting experience .
3. Serve on melba toast .
Something similar , but not as fishy .
Carrot ball work well Red Caviar .
Red on Red .
Mix whole , chopped or carved carrots with Cinnamon , ginger, nutmeg , turmeric , pepper , cloves in oil .
Add chili or sugar to taste.
Microwave till cooked .
Add dash of orange juice to taste .
