To take your desserts to the next level, you will need the cutting-edge techniques that we teach you in this course. You will learn to master them and use them correctly.

The talented David Gil will introduce you to spectacular textures that will astound your senses

In this online course, the young prodigy chef David Gil will teach you how to create different textures, both sweet and salty, using techniques such as spherification and nitrogen as well as surprising textures such as marshmallows and clouds that will revolutionize your starters, main dishes or desserts.

The young chef, a former pupil of the Adriá brothers, will explain different techniques for spherifications and explain which one to use depending on your goal. He will also demonstrate extensions to the basic spherifications by mixing them with other techniques such as foams or dehydrates among others, with spectacular results.

In the course you will also learn how to use liquid nitrogen and learn about its infinite uses in gastronomy. Last but not least, you will experiment with techniques involving marshmallows and clouds – light and soft textures that melt on the palate. David will provide clear explanations as to the versatility of each elaboration so that everyone can develop their own creativity.
