Last year, Nathan Myhrvold published his six volume tome on molecular gastronomy, Modernist Cuisine: The Art of Science and Cooking. However, this in-depth analysis on the future of cooking was not geared towards the home cook. In October, Myhryold and Maxime Bilet are releasing Modernist Cuisine at Home, a 456-page cookbook containing 400 recipes and all the essential information that every home cook should know. Included are useful kitchen tips like how to test the accuracy of a thermometer, how to cook steak and fish perfectly, how to deep fry foods without using a deep fryer, and more. Modernist Cuisine at Home is priced at $140 and is available for pre-order on Amazon (very reasonable compared to the 50 pound $625 collection). For a sneak preview, visit the Modernist Cuisine website.
