Molecular Catering in Indian Catering

Molecular catering derived out of molecular gastronomy or modern cuisines is our focus area.  Being the front runner way back in 2010. Possibly the first demonstration of molecular cuisines in India. Here again the possible first mover to incorporate molecular or seated catering in India on such scales

Molecular gastronomy catering

  • Molecular gastronomy: where science meets cooking and the results are mind game treats you can eat.
  • It is novelty at large,and a form of science-based cooking
  • Illustration above is a common cocktail  mojito, in the shape of a sphere
  • Modern cuisine is more about changing the typical form of food to misinterpret what’s obvious


Molecular catering is best enjoyed as a seated dinner
