Any idea what the name of this technique is? It's described as "asparagus in asparagus gelee"

Curious as to where it originated & how it is preformed.

Here is the video.

For gelatin we used Kappa, and instead of ice water we used liquid nitrogen.

Have no idea when it comes to origen, but my guess is here in Spain.

@ljokjel, Hi, I'm curious what Kappa is. vitamin?

Also, if you use the nit would it not make the product brittle?

Kappa

You cool down the metal with the nitrogen for a couple of seconds, and then put the cold metal into the warm liquid with the gelatin. 
The cold will make the gelatin around the metal cool down, and harden. The liquid is never in contact with the nitro.

Icewater is fine, but with the nitro you dont have to dry it off every time.

I was gonna say it's a very nice chaud-froid.  :)  You just have to dip the asparagus in gelatin a few times.
