The book includes a spiral-bound Kitchen Manual that reprints all of the recipes and reference tables on waterproof, tear-resistant paper. Drawing on the same commitment to perfection that produced Modernist Cuisine, Modernist Cuisine at Home applies innovations pioneered by The Cooking Lab to refine classic home dishes, from hamburgers and wings to macaroni and cheese. More than 400 new recipes are included, most with step-by-step photos that make it easy to bring dining of the highest quality to your own dinner table. Among the amazing techniques you ll find are: how to cook fish and steak perfectly every time, whether you re in the kitchen, the backyard, or tailgating in a parking lot; how to use a pressure cooker to make stocks in a fraction of the usual time while capturing more of the flavor; the secret to making quick, sumptuous caramelized vegetable soups and purees; how to outfit your home oven to make pizzas as crispy as you would get from a wood-fired brick oven; along with recipes for: perfect eggs and breathtaking omelets that remove the guesswork for stress-free breakfasts, even for a crowd; gravies and a hollandaise sauce that are wonderfully rich, perfectly smooth, and never separate; a flawless cheeseburger and an ultrafrothy milk shake; chicken wings made better with Modernist techniques, plus seven great sauces and coatings for them; macaroni and cheese, including stove-top, baked, and fat-free versions, that can be made with any cheese blend you like, from gouda and cheddar to jack and Stilton. Cooking like a Modernist chef at home requires the right set of tools, but they re less expensive and easier to find than you might think. You ll also learn how to get the best out of the kitchen appliances you already own. Learn how to use your microwave oven to steam fish and vegetables to perfection, make exceptional beef jerky, and fry delicate herbs. The first 100 pages of the book are a trove of useful information, such as: how to test the accuracy of a thermometer, and why it s time to switch to digital; how to use (and not to use) a blowtorch to sear food fast and beautifully; how to marinate meats more quickly evenly by injecting the brine; the myriad uses for a whipping siphon beyond whipped cream; why those expensive copper pans may not be worth the price; how to deep-fry without a deep fryer; how to stop worrying and get the most out of your pressure cooker; how to cook sous vide at home with improvised equipment, a special-purpose water bath, or a home combi oven. Modernist Cuisine at Home is an indispensable guide for anyone who is passionate about food and cooking.

Notă biografică

Dr. Nathan Myhrvold is chief executive officer and a founder of Intellectual Ventures, a firm dedicated to creating and investing in inventions. In addition to stimulating the invention of others, Myhrvold is himself an active inventor, with nearly 250 patents issued or pending-including several related to food technology. Before founding his invention company, Myhrvold was the first chief technology officer at Microsoft. He established Microsoft Research, and during his tenure he oversaw many advanced technology projects. He left Microsoft in 1999 to pursue several interests, including a lifelong interest in cooking and food science. Myhrvold competed on a team that won first place in several categories at the 1991 World Championship of Barbecue, including first prize in the special pasta category for a recipe that Myhrvold developed on the day of the contest. After working for two years as a stagier at Seattle's top French restaurant, Rover's, Myhrvold completed culinary training with renowned chef Anne Willan at the Ecole De La Varenne. In addition, he has worked as Chief Gastronomic Officer for Zagat Survey, publisher of the popular Zagat restaurant guidebooks. Through his many visits to the world's top restaurants, Myhrvold has become personally acquainted with many of the leading Modernist chefs and the science-inspired cooking techniques they have pioneered. Myhrvold is himself an accomplished practitioner of Modernist cuisine. He has contributed original research on cooking sous vide to online culinary forums, and his sous vide techniques have been covered in the New York Times Magazine, Wired, and PBS's "Gourmet's Diary of a Foodie" television series. Myhrvold's formal education includes degrees in mathematics, geophysics, and space physics from UCLA, and PhDs in mathematical economics and theoretical physics from Princeton University. In his post-doctoral work at Cambridge University, Myhrvold worked on quantum theories of gravity with the renowned cosmologist Stephen Hawking. Maxime Bilet received a BA in creative writing, literature, and visual arts from Skidmore College. Bilet then graduated with highest honors from the Institute of Culinary Education in New York. He completed a stage at Jack's Luxury Oyster Bar and was quickly hired to the head chef position there by Jack Lamb. Moving to London, he accepted a stage with Heston Blumenthal's development team at The Fat Duck. Just prior to joining the culinary team as head chef for recipe research and development at The Cooking Lab, Bilet trained as sous chef to open the London branch of Auberge de L'Ile. In 2011, Bilet was named to Forbes Magazine's 30 Under 30 list in the category of Food and Wine.
