‘Modernist Cuisine’ is the massive self-published work by technology multimillionaire Nathan Myhrvold. The six volume set is days upon days of eye candy for chefs and food enthusiasts. 'Modernist Cuisine' offers a visually stimulating ride through the universe of of food and cooking tools along with a cadre of over 1,000 recipes.
If you have ever drooled over the “molecular gastronomy” often shown on ‘Top Chef,’ what you will find in this series is the step beyond that. The contributors of this tome hopes that those that pore over these beautiful books will throw out that old term and adopt the newest movement in food, “modernist cuisine.” The works took close to two years to write and photograph with a team of chefs and assistants working in a warehouse kitchen laboratory.
