How do you make an omelet light and tender on the outside, but rich and creamy inside? Or French fries with a light and fluffy interior and a crisp crust that doesn’t go soggy? Imagine being able to encase a mussel in a gelled sphere of its own sweet and briny juice. This book offers instructions and explanations of how these techniques work.

“This book will change the way we understand the kitchen” – Ferran Adria A six-volume, 2,438-page set-including more than 3,200 original images-that is destined to reinvent cooking “The most important book in the culinary arts since Escoffier.” – Tim Zagat”.

A revolution is underway in the art of cooking. Just as French Impressionists upended centuries of tradition, Modernist cuisine has in recent years blown through the boundaries of the culinary arts. Borrowing techniques from the laboratory, pioneering chefs at world-renowned restaurants such as elBulli, The Fat Duck, Alinea, and wd~50 have incorporated a deeper understanding of science and advances in cooking technology into their culinary art. The authors and their 20-person team at The Cooking Lab – scientists, inventors, and accomplished cooks in their own right – have achieved astounding new flavors and textures by using tools such as water baths, homogenizers, and centrifuges, and ingredients such as hydrocolloids, emulsifiers, and enzymes. “Modernist Cuisine” is a work destined to reinvent cooking. How do you make an omelet light and tender on the outside, but rich and creamy inside? Or French fries with a light and fluffy interior and a delicate, crisp crust that doesn’t go soggy? Imagine being able to encase a mussel in a gelled sphere of its own sweet and briny juice. Or to create a silky-smooth pistachio cream made from nothing more than the nuts themselves. “Modernist Cuisine” offers step-by-step, illustrated instructions, as well as clear explanations of how these techniques work. Through thousands of original photographs and diagrams, the lavishly illustrated books make the science and technology of the culinary arts clear and engaging. Stunning new photographic techniques take the reader inside the food to see cooking in action all the way from microscopic meat fibers to an entire Weber grill in cross-section. You will view cooking-and eating-in a whole new light. It includes topics such as: why plunging food in ice water doesn’t stop the cooking process; when boiling cooks faster than steaming; why raising the grill doesn’t lower the heat; how low-cost pots and pans can perform better than expensive ones; why baking is mostly a drying process; why deep-fried food tastes best and browns better when the oil is older; and, how modern cooking techniques can achieve ideal results without the perfect timing or good luck that traditional methods demand. It offers insights into the surprising science behind traditional food preparation methods such as grilling, smoking, and stir-frying. It is the most comprehensive guide yet published on cooking sous vide, including the best options for water baths, packaging materials, and sealing equipment; cooking strategies; and troubleshooting tips. It features more than 250 pages on meat and seafood and 144 pages on fruits, vegetables, and grains, including dozens of parametric recipes and step-by-step techniques. There are extensive chapters explaining how to achieve amazing results by using modern thickeners, gels, emulsions, and foams, including example recipes and many formulas. It also contains some 300 pages of new recipes for plated dishes suitable for service at top-tier restaurants, plus recipes adapted from master chefs including Grant Achatz, Ferran Adria, Heston Blumenthal, David Chang, Wylie Dufresne, David Kinch, and many others. It includes: “Volume 1: History and Fundamentals”; “Volume 2: Techniques and Equipment”; “Volume 3: Animals and Plants”; “Volume 4: Ingredients and Preparations”; “Volume 5: Plated-Dish Recipes”; “Volume 6: Kitchen Manual” with example recipes and extensive reference tables, printed on washable paper.


En Cocina modernista: El arte y la ciencia de la cocina; Nathan Myhrvold, Chris Young, y Bilet Maxime – científicos, inventores, y los cocineros a cabo en su propio derecho – han creado una obra de seis tomos, 2.400 páginas, que revela la ciencia y técnicas inspiradas en la preparación de alimentos que va desde el otro mundo a lo sublime. Los autores y su equipo de 20 personas en el Laboratorio de cocina han logrado asombrosos nuevos sabores y texturas mediante el uso de herramientas tales como baños de agua, homogeneizadores, centrifugadoras, e ingredientes como los hidrocoloides, emulsionantes y enzimas. Se trata de un trabajo destinado a reinventar la cocina.
