One of the London restaurant kitchens that features in the forthcoming Bradley Cooper film, Burnt, needed to be ‘science’ themed.
The production team called in Cream Supplies which, together with long-time collaborator Dr Rachel Edwards-Stuart (food scientist and flavour expert), provided a plethora of modern equipment, tools and ingredients.
The list included a collection of laboratory equipment from Petri dishes, watch glasses, flasks, measuring cylinders, test tubes, syringes, spherification equipment and magnetic stirrers, to large scale kit that included a PolyScience Antigriddle and Buchi rotary evaporator. The company also supplied a large collection of Special Ingredients’ ‘molecular gastronomy’ hydrocolloid powders.
Bradley Cooper stars as Adam Jones, a chef whose self-destructive behaviour has caused him to lose his two Michelin stars in Paris. Intent on winning them back and even aspiring to attain an elusive third star, he comes to London and, with the help of fellow chef, Helene (Sienna Miller), strives to achieve his goal.
Burnt is due for release in US on 23 October and the UK on 6 November.
