On Sunday, right after coming back to Paris from the Internet Festival of Romans, I had the opportunity of visiting Le Laboratoire, a place created by David Edwards and dedicated to experimental art and design creations... I went there to check the current exhibit by famous chef Thierry Marx and physicist Jérôme Bibette who teamed up to create new tastes in molecular gastronomy. For example, they invented a new technology that allows to embed tasty solutions in small salmon size "marbles". I did not get the chance to try this but I tried the "whif bar" where you "inhale" chocolate powder through a sort of plastic cigarette. If you're in Paris before July 2008, give it a try, but make sure you book ahead (see all info here).
