Modernist Cuisine At Home Cookbook

A comprehensive guide to the art and science of cooking, Modernist Cuisine at Home is destined to become a classic kitchen reference. Authors Nathan Myhrvold and Maxime Bilet have collected in this 456-page volume all the essential information any home cook needs (and what you don't need) to equip a modern kitchen, to master essential cooking techniques and to make stunning recipes. The lavishly illustrated book applies scientific innovations pioneered by The Cooking Lab to refine classic home dishes, from hamburgers and wings to macaroni and cheese. More than 400 new recipes and variations are included, most with step-by-step photos that make it easy to bring food of the highest quality to your own dinner table. The book includes a 230-page Kitchen Manual that reproduces the book's recipes and reference tables in a spiral-bound, waterproof companion. Hardcover, 456 pages.

A Milestone Piece for Cookbook Mavens
October 9, 2012
Ok. I'll admit that i have a cookbook habit. I've been lusting after Modernist Cuisine since the original version came out last year. I knew, however, that it was probably too much for even a serious home cook. Plus, I didn't want to stop shopping at WS to buy the $400+ version! My husband ordered this for me as soon as it became available, and I'm fascinated: Stunning photography, lots of science (very approachable). It will change the way you view the kitchen! Even if I never cook sous-vide or full-blown molecular gastronomy, I now understand more about how it and more traditional techniques work and will incorporate this learning into my cooking! If you are the type of person who loves going to restaurants where chefs showcase their skills via tasting menus, you MUST have this tome!
Pros: Quality, Design, fab gift!
