When we talk about spaghetti in terms of molecular gastronomy, we’re unlikely to be thinking about bolognaise sauce. This spaghetti is created using a combination of gelification techniques and a tool which enables you to form long strings of your recipe, which can then be served as a main course, an accompaniment or a starter.
This recipe for tomato spaghetti would be excellent served with a garlicky chick stew or tagine. Serve five or six strands of spagetti per person, and arrange the strands on top of the stew for best effect.
