I saw a TV show where a dish was served covered with a foam and subsequently a sauce was poured over the foam, which dissolved to reveal the dish under the foam. I have tried dissolving regular lecithin aire foams with vinegar, salt etc. without success.

Any suggestion for a combination of a stable foam and a sauce which readily dissolves the foam?

    What TV show? Knowing where you saw this might help others to determine what kind of foam it was, and what the "dissolving agent" was. Dec 3, 2022 at 17:17

    You say 'stable foam' but if it dissolved so easily it may have been made just prior to service for a showy effect.

  • @Xander - The TV show was a Danish competition - perhaps qualification for Bocuse d'Or around 2010.

  • @dbmag9 - I think you are right; stable was just my was of saying serving with a foam, which stayed as foam for several minutes. But I wonder if some additive will work as defoaming agent, to speed up unstability
