Do you use cognac in cooking? Perhaps you might enjoy a dash of your favourite eaux-de-vie when flavouring fish or meat, or maybe a healthy measure over your dessert pancakes.
But now, thanks to the company, Brumes Gourmandes, and its founders, you can have a perfume inspired aerosol bottle to add a wonderful, alcohol infused spray to many different dishes and meals.
Wahh Quantum Sensations
Co-founder of Brumes Gourmandes (which translates as Gourmet Mists), Jean-David Camus, said that the idea behind the company is to revive the use of various spirits in cooking, and that these are part of our gastronomic heritage. He’s concerned that if nothing is done, in the future our children will not even consider using alcohol in cooking.
It’s a small aerosol that gives a small burst of fragrance that can make you feel ‘quite drunk’ but without the disadvantage of actually drinking the alcohol. This effect has been named ‘Wahh Quantum Sensations.’ Mr Camus, who has previously worked in the perfume industry, says that the advantage of this presentation is the choice of the amount of alcohol, and that this can be varied depending on individual tastes. When it’s sprayed, millions of tiny droplets explode, creating an extremely aromatic effect.
And it’s not only cognac that’s included in the range. There’s also pastis, whisky, rum, marc de Bourgogne, cherry and Williams pear options.
