Spherification is the process of creating small spheres, often with a liquid center, that resemble caviar. The process uses a gelling agent to achieve the sphere, normally Sodium Alginate dropped in to Calcium Chloride. Reverse spherification involves the same two chemicals but switches the order. Agar agar can also be used for spherification by dropping it in to cold olive oil.
