What kind of foam sauce are you looking for? Need more parameters to give you useful information. Way too many divergent options.

A white seafood foam sauce and a pink lobster bisque foam sauce. Do i need any special gadget?

Thanks you.

1) Add some agar or gelatin to your sauce base. Strain through fine sieve. Use a whip cream whipper to foam it as needed.

2) Add some lecithin to the sauce base. Beat it with a mixer or blender. Skim off the foam to use as a sauce.

Thanks thethincook, may I know why have to use gelatine or agar agar powder(is ok to use while it is hot) and lastly soy lecithin(available from pharmacy)? Thanks and cheers!

Gelatin and agar agar form a network that enables significant air entrainment.  They also do a good job stabilizing the foam.


Lecithin is an emulsifier that collects at the air-water interface of the bubbles and stabilizes the foam somewhat.
