I will be the first to admit that we get to do some pretty cool things in the kitchen. One of Chef Adams favorite things to do is play with sugar. I am talking about using it in a different form then the normal white stuff. When you boil sugar with some other key ingredients it will turn in to candy. It is like making home made suckers, hard candy or cotton candy. Instead of pouring it into a mold like you would a sucker, while it is still warm, use a fork to flip the sugar back and forth over a bowl or as Adam used two elevated sticks to catch the strings.
What is it good for you ask? It has many uses, but we had a party the other night that called for spun sugar as a garnish on top of cheesecake. A simple looking web of sugar can really take regular cheesecake on a plate to a whole new level of Fun! It is fun to eat, fun to make and just ask Chef Adam, fun to play with.
