Have you seen this?
“Modernist Cuisine is a six-volume, 2,438-page set that is destined to reinvent cooking. The lavishly illustrated books use thousands of original images to make the science and technology clear and engaging.”
Apparently a former Microsoft executive had some time on his hands and put together a cookbook. But wait, not just any cookbook. Probably the most amazing and intriguing and beautiful set of cookbooks EVER. Seriously. I first heard about the “book” on NPR, you can listen to the interview here.
They actually cut grills, wok, pans, etc in half to get cross-section photos of the food while cooking. Simply amazing. However, it’s also a bit pricey. Like about $600 too pricey. But it’s on my wish list, and I’d consider it an investment. Or I just need to win the lottery.
