Food Geek Moment: Modernist Cuisine

So even though I don’t use recipes a whole lot (unless baking or pastry comes into play), I definitely enjoy reading books about technique, and would especially like to start reading books about the creative molecular stuff or the super-refined classical techniques (i.e. The French Laundry Cookbook, Alinea, El Bulli, etc).

Some of the techniques in these books, as far as I’ve read from reviews, are super advanced. Would I like to try some of them? For sure! Other times, I like to look at the plated dishes, usually in awe, because they are edible art most of the time.

Another huge cooking tome, called Modernist Cuisine: The Art and Science of Cooking is coming out soon (March 2011, tentatively), first on Amazon.com.

This bad boy is about 2400 pages of cooking technique, history, etc, split into 6 different volumes. All for the low, low price of $500.00 US (of course you can sense just a little sarcasm here). Of course that is not in my budget, but it looks exciting to say the least.

Check out the website for the book by clicking: The Modernist Cuisine: The Art and Science of Cooking
