Montreal entrepreneur Naor Cohen created a unique device that converts any form of liquid into pearl-like balls of fake caviar. This handheld device is named the 'Imperial Spherificator' and works by using an existing process of the same name.
This process of spherification mixes liquid with sodium alginate and then blends it with cold water and calcium chloride. Once mixed, this liquid concoction transforms into tiny balls of gelatin. The 'Imperial Spherificator' device can transform anything from hot sauce to champagne into a caviar replica.
Naor Cohen created the product because caviar is an acquired taste and it tends to be pricey, but its texture and aesthetic value is quite appealing. This fake caviar machine creates tiny balls of caviar from any liquid, creating a pleasing garnish to a variety of dishes.
