THE MIRACLE BERRY DIET COOKBOOK

THE MIRACLE BERRY DIET COOKBOOK

Moto and iNG restaurant in Chicago has always been known for its amazing selection of food. The experience at either of these restaurants is something you will be talking about for years to come.

Molecular Gastronomy, which is what the owner of both Moto and iNG uses to create their dishes, is a sub discipline of food science that uses physical and chemical transformations to create common and also, very unorthodox foods.

A Chicago resident, experienced designer Homaro Cantu has taken it a step further with his new book The Miracle Berry Diet Cookbook and used the amazing power of miracle berries to turn anything sour into a sweet sensation, that is also low in calories and sugar for people on diets.

Synsepalum dulcificum, also known as the miracle fruit, is a plant with a berry that when eaten, causes sour foods such as lemons and limes to taste very sweet. It was discovered by a group of 1800 English Scientists researching how an African tribe survived drought. The Tribsmen used the berry to make every root they gathered palatable.

The miracle berry temporarily blocks your tongue’s ability to taste sour flavors and makes even the most bitter of foods delicious. Miracle Berry allows you to replace the sugar and artificial sweeteners in your favorite recipes with low-glycemic foods such as lemons, limes, vinegar, and sour cream. Perfect for people suffering from diabetes or anyone else looking to reduce their sugar intake. Besides, doesn’t less sugar reduce wrinkles?

The Miracle Berry Diet Cookbook takes strategic advantage of Miracle Berry by creating a cookbook with over 150 recipes geared towards people trying to reduce their consumption of sugar by replacing sugar with sour foods and using the miracle berry to create some amazing flavors and reducing calories. Called “flavor tripping” by many, dinner parties revolving around the miracle berry have been a recent craze among friends as of the last few years. With this book release the Miracle Berry may have reached the masses.

  • Lemons will taste like lemonade. (Add lemon juice to your coffee instead of sugar!)
  • Even the most flavorless tomatoes will taste perfectly ripe.
  • Bananas will have notes of passion fruit or pineapple.
  • Hot sauce will have layers of pepper flavors—not just heat.
  • Pineapple will taste like pure candy
  • cheap tequila tastes awaome (try it with your favorite bar tender and drink shots for free)
  • Schlitz Beer takes on a fruity favor

The Miracle Berry Diet Cookbook is available on Amazon or if you would like to try some of these amazing dishes yourself, Design Engine highly recommends iNG or MOTO Restaurant which are located at 951 & 945 West Fulton Market in Chicago. If you haven’t visited Design Engine before, feel free to use miracle berry as an excuse to stop over. We have freeze-dried miracle berries in the freezer! Just kindly, give us an hours notice and bring a few items you want to try such as Tabasco sauce, limes, lemons, soda water, and (here’s a big one), Beer.
