Note by note cuisine is a style of cooking that replaces traditional ingredients with chemical constituents. According to French scientist Herve, the process can feed more people, prevent spoilage and save energy. His technique deconstructs ingredients into their constituents. After identifying the fundamental make up of dishes, the raw compounds are mixed to reconstruct the traditional dishes. For example, steak is a combination of protein, water, colorants and powders. Using chemical compounds would prevent food spoilage and feed more people. Mr Herve explained science was so powerful that he could make one new food product every month for 20 years. He ultimately wanted households to replace spice racks with cupboards of glucose, piperine, amylose, tartaric acid and other compounds.
