Use of Liquid Nitrogen for preparing foodstuff-any ideas?

P020609_065.jpg

I help out at the Da Vinci Science Center (Allentown PA; www.davinci-center.org )-- we make Liquid Nitrogen Ice Cream for students to enjoy and learn about the elements, phase of matter and temperature range.  Does anyone have an idea for other food treats using liquid nitrogen that can be SAFELY made, enjoyed ( eaten), or handled? I hear there are many--and one restaurant in Venice Italy has a whole menu of such creations.

Happy to give credit where credit is due.  Frank Schweighardt, Chairman of the Board.

Frank,

You should check out the food designed by Richard Blais. He is a food

designer/chef who was on the Top Chef show on Bravo, and currently has

his own show called 'Blais Off' on the Science Channel. I've watched

several episodes and he does lots of stuff with liquid nitrogen, some of

it seems quite simple if you have the equipment. You can search on the

web for more information, or you can go to this website to see a preview

of the show:

You might want to contact him directly - he might be interested in

helping out the museum.
