Marcel's Quantum Kitchen Giveaway

Have you been watching Marcel's Quantum Kitchen on Syfy?
The liquid nitrogen-toting Marcel Vigneron has a lot to prove -- his reputation in the restaurant world is that of a seasoned molecular gastronomy chef extraordinaire, but he is still known to scores of Top Chef fans as a young and talented chef with an oversized ego. While executing complicated experiments and ideas in the kitchen, Marcel is stoic and demands to be in charge. But he is also surprisingly fun and engaging when outside the kitchen, taking his clients’ requests and dreams for a spectacular experience to heart. His passion for food is unparalleled. He’s an ingénue and food perfectionist who struggles with the belief that he just may be too big for his current kitchen.

In other words - Marcel's a pretty damn creative guy. We like to think his fans are, too, and we have a fantabulous prize to give away to one of them, and the winning can't be easier. Just answer this simple question:

What's the most creative dish you've ever made?

So what's the prize? It's a cooking kit that includes: a canvas tote bag; herb garden set; herb seeds (parsley, Oregano, basil); shell digital scale; bamboo cutting board; kitchen utensils (whisk, spatula, spoon); oil/vinegar bottle; salt & pepper shakers; branded Moleskine recipe journal; and an apron.

So what are you waiting for? Leave your answer to the question in a comment. Oh, and don't forget to read the official rules, below.

Haven't gotten around to using liquid nitrogen in anything, but a lobster bisque was a bit of a challenge for me. nick@treasurela.com

I have made balls of peanut butter and poured hershey syrup over them- then used a spoon to eat them- real gourmet, right?

I made Marcel's coffee caviar with chocolate mousse for a Chemistry Graduate Seminar talk on Molecular Gastronomy... those little pellets were full of awesomeness.

I would have to say my fruit salsa. I had never really made a salsa let alone a fruit inspired one. Yet a friend challenged me to do a local food markets Cinco de Mayo festival cook off that involved a homeade salsa contest. Well to my very enthusiastic surprise I won FIRST place. This is now a staple on my menu with my fish tacos.
CONGRATS! to The Goat Girl & Blais! You guys rock!!
