ISO an interesting and unusual appetizer I had

Sometime back I attended an event and on the menu was a particular appetizer that Iíve never come across since. Basically it looked like a poached egg served in a Chinese style spoon, however as soon as you put it in your mouth it basically became a sweet fluid. Hopefully Iíve explained myself enough for someone to be in a position to help. In anticipation, thanks for your time and hopefully an answer.

I'm thinking molecular gastronomy. A fruit essence (for example) is extracted from the fruit and process with a chemical to form a liquid ball similar to an egg yolk. As soon as you put it into your mouth, it breaks and you taste the fruit.

Although I recognized what the OP was talking about, I've never done it myself.

Just Google "molecular gastronomy". I believe salt and pepper has tried this.

Welcome to DC Thayne. This is a fun and informative forum. Please stick around and join in the fun.

You found an answer really fast. I am not surprised. There are so many cooks here with all sorts of information just for the asking.
