About Galaxy Gas Whipped Cream Dispenser use in this Recipe:
Modern-day chefs are turning to the new and innovative method of aerating their recipes. This method involves the use of a revolutionary tool called the Siphon, or whipped cream dispenser.
The Galaxy Gas Whipped Cream Dispenser is a handheld device that looks like a canister. A Galaxy Gas Whipped Cream Charger charges any given batter with Nitrous Oxide gas. Now chefs are experimenting with the Dispenser to create unique recipes which are much better than their non-nitrous counterparts.
Richard Blais, a celebrity chef in Atlanta’s the Spence, wrote a book named ‘Try This At Home’ in which he explains how this innovative little device can make a huge difference when used in the right recipe.
According to him, ‘the joy of Siphon is that you can take heavy things and make them lighter.
People use different tips and tricks to make their deep-fry batters crisp and airy. Some recipes use club soda or beer to lighten the batter. Alternatively, vodka is also used in such recipes as the alcohol has a lower boiling point than water. The addition of alcohol-containing ingredients enhances the texture of a deep-fried batter.
In this recipe, Richard Blais used both of them. To lighten the batter further, he used the siphon. This technique gave an amazingly crunchy yet mouth-melting texture to the onion rings. You can also use this batter for frying anything from chicken, fish, or pork.
Whipped Cream Chargers and Dispensers
Nitrous oxide is more soluble in fat as compared with water. Therefore liquids with higher fat composition usually produce a more excellent foam in a siphon than low-fat liquids. That is why whipping siphons are an ideal choice for aerating high-fat creams.
Traditionally people use baking powder, baking soda, yeast, steam pressure, egg whites, or beer for aerating their batters. But using Galaxy Gas Whipped Cream Dispenser produces the very best results.
