If you have a copy of Modernist Cuisine you can enjoy experimenting in your kitchen. But you need to be patient to experiment by trying various methods that require using additives, mostly natural and some otherwise. There are so many additives you can use, so many variations it can become confusing. If you cannot be patient enough to read through the 5 volumes of Modernist Cuisine you can buy the home version. Even still you may wish to venture out on your own and use this table as a guide to experiment. This table can help you in basic preparations using stabilizers to prepare sauces, and foods. The kitchen is a place where creating has its own language.
