Instructed by trainDAVINCI Subject Matter Expert; Daniel Hulme, CEO and Founder – On Air Dining, London, United Kingdom.
After spending his formative years as a chef in some of London’s most critically acclaimed Michelin starred restaurants, and then delivering that same level of food onboard UHNWIs yachts and then at the America’s cup in Valencia, Daniel had a vision that has taken him to where he is now with the tremendously successful On Air Dining. Daniel will be displaying his outstanding and innovative plating technique skills and well as the mastery of molecular gastronomy during this hands-on interactive course applicable for all skill levels.
- Umami – “Japanese for “pleasant savory taste” is often referred to as the “5th basic taste” along with sweetness, bitterness,sourness, and saltiness. How to prepare umami foods inflight as it generates saliva in the mouth and is one of the most important and most glorious flavors we experience daily — the one that makes brothy soups so heart-warming, seared meats so satisfying and aged cheeses so delightful.

- Sous Vide & Molecular Gastronomy – When science meets food. Sous Vide is a method of cooking vacuum sealed foods in a water bath for a long period of time. The purpose for this is to maintain the integrity of the ingredients. The water bath is kept in a consistent temperature and it cooks the food evenly. Discover with us the secrets of molecular gastronomy and taste the benefits first hand.
