Servings 4


  • 2 g Agar Agar
  • 150 ml Water
  • 50 ml Red Port Wine
  • 20 g Granulated Sugar


  • In a small saucepan, combine the water, agar agar powder, red port wine, and granulated sugar. Whisk well to combine.
  • Heat the mixture over medium heat until it comes to a simmer, stirring occasionally.
  • Reduce the heat to low and continue to cook for 2-3 minutes until the agar agar and sugar are completely dissolved.
  • Remove the pan from the heat and let the mixture cool for a few minutes.
  • Cut a length of silicon tubing to your desired spaghetti length. Make sure the inside diameter is small enough to hold the gel mixture.
  • Fill a food syringe with the gel mixture and carefully inject it into the tubing.
  • Hold the tubing under cold water to allow the gel to set (inside the tubing). This probably takes a minute or so.
  • Once the gel has set, gently remove the syringe by taking it of the tubing. Add some water to the syringe, re-attach the syringe to the tube and 'push' the gel out of the tube using the water pressure.
  • Using a sharp knife, carefully slice the gel into spaghetti-like strands. Store until needed (up to two days)
  • Use it as a garnish for desserts, cheese platters or other dishes.
