Have you ever wondered how one of the oldest preservation techniques has become today a new trend among the chefs all around the world?

How has the dehydration become a technique able to create dishes with aromas and flavours never experienced before?

To properly understand we must step back.

We know that water is life, but, it is paradoxically also the cause of the deterioration of foods.
Water is the ideal environment for bacteria and mold to reproduce themselves and proliferate.
So people started drying to preserve food and it did not take long to realize that dried foods changed their aromas and textures.
A juicy fruit can become crispy, and this lead the way to games of flavours and textures never experienced before.

You say …Why??

Well, let’s try to explain it by describing the singles practical advantages and possibilities of the dehydration!

1) Easy

To dehydrate foods requires no special training and it is available to everyone.
What is surprising is that such a simple and natural process is able to convert food “into other foods’ with totally different flavours and textures.

3) Natural

After cooking, many foods undergo a strengthening process of their flavours through additives so that their aromas can be perceived as if they were fresh.
Drying is instead a natural process!
Foods do not require any additives to release all their flavours but there is more!
In fact, due to the concentration resulting from the evaporation of water, the dehydration enhances the flavours in a natural way, without the help of chemical products!

So dried foods can be used to emphasize the overall taste of a dish and enhance its aromas.

Yes, an essential element of the modern kitchen is the texture of food. Together with flavours, textures are part of the elements that contribute to the balance of the dish.
