For many of us, food is no longer just a source of fuel - eating out is more often about adventure, entertaining and discovering something new.
The growth and influence of molecular gastronomy continues to expand - from the wild and whimsical experiments by Heston Blumenthal on Heston's Feasts , to the spherification of peas by Aaron Thomas on MasterChef season one, to the high-end deconstructivism of dishes by Ferran Adria at El Bulli.
Today's Freebie Friday is your chance to learn more about the molecular cooking methods used in Tokyo's top restaurants with a molecular gastronomy dinner class, Tokyo Food Trends, by Chef's Armoury.
