New Cookbook: Modernist Cuisine

Wok Cutaway

Full title: Modernist Cuisine: the art and science of cooking.  I got news of this book in a tweet from Bill Gates, of all people.  So, of course, I had to check it out.  It turns out that one of the authors is Nathan Myhrvold, the first Chief Technology Officer at Microsoft.  The book isn’t out, yet, but is available for pre-order from Amazon and B&N.

From the teaser web site here, the photography looks amazing. The website has a lot of pictures, including the wok cutaway above.   There is also a 10 page PDF file on the site with excerpts from the book.  It *is* 6 volumes, but I think the $500 price tag is a bit steep. We’ll see how well it’s reviewed…
