plan on spending $400 to $500 per person if you pair the meal with wine. Dinner for two with tax and tip can cost upwards of $1,000.

If you want me to have a great time just give me a bowl of ice cream.

Zelnyair says:

One thing I find curious is that vanillin, a molecule that smells of vanilla (if you get cheap vanilla extract, it probably has vanillin in it), and capsaicin, the molecule responsible for chillies being hot, are rather similar.

The only difference in their structures is that vanillin has an aldehyde group on its 6-carbon ring, and capsaicin has a much longer molecular chain instead.

So, given the similar structures, would that mean that a little bit of chilli on some vanilla ice cream could taste surprisingly nice?

Is this the sort of thing molecular gastronomy is about?

Ash Ketchum says:

What if you didn’t have a great childhood?What if the food doesn’t evoke any memories in you?Because you don’t have suitable memories?
