Liquid Nitrogen Is a Cool New Trend at Events

Using liquid nitrogen to craft attention-getting foods is not a new concept, but when done right—and with the proper precautions—it can be a real crowd-pleaser at events. See how these three spots are catching on to the cold: Bella Christie and Lil’ Z’s Sweet Boutique  Attendees will see dessert in a whole new light when you book this Pittsburgh-based sweets team. You may remember its flash-frozen treats from Connect Marketplace: jumbo marshmallows, apple slices, bananas or brownies on a stick, dipped in chocolate, caramel, peanut butter, Biscoff spread or Nutella. Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Resort Executive Chef Robert Ciborowski plays around with nitrogen in two different items. The first is nitro kettle corn, a twist on an old favorite for breaks or receptions. “It is a great conversation piece, as attendees like to blow the smoke out of their mouths and nose,” he says. The chef’s take on tuna tartare, which is a real “wow” dish for plated functions, is cubed sushi tuna with nitro Sriracha aioli poured over it tableside, creating a texture explosion of creamy, spicy and cold. Hola! Taqueria & Bar Wait for a round of these frozen margaritas to cool off before sipping them down at this authentic Mexican spot in Roswell, Georgia, which can be bought out for groups of up to 170. Seats at the indoor/outdoor bar are the best in the house, and don’t miss the delectable lobster tacos.
