      To call this a ‘book’ would be an understatement, and I don’t mean that in a way which insults other books as every book has great value depending on who its reader is. However; Modernist Cuisine is with out doubt one of the most important pieces of cooking/gastronomy/food science writing published since Harold McGee’s On Food & Cooking. Abstract. Culinary arts are the practices or methods of preparing foods and beverages. Along with food science, it transforms nutrition recommendations into healthy ingredients, recipes and menus. This chapter provides the rationale, resources and hands-on exercises for healthy recipe conversions and menu development, plus information on healthy kitchen makeovers, the economics of healthy.

    Scope and content: An overview of the techniques of modern gastronomy. Nathan Myhrvold, Chris Young, and Maxime Bilet -- scientists, inventors, and accomplished cooks in their own right -- have created a six-volume 2, page set that reveals science-inspired techniques for preparing food.   Along with his two co-authors, Chris Young and Maxime Bilet, Myhrvold created a self-published, highly produced, six-volume cookbook entitled, Modernist Cuisine: The Art and Science of Cooking.

      Cooking can seem like something that only professionals can do. But if you have some good information and tips of the trade, then even those who burn toast can make a delicious meal. All it takes is the right techniques and a little bit of knowledge to turn you into a chef.   He studied science and literature at Caltech and Yale, and has written two prize-winning books, On Food and Cooking and The Curious Cook, as well as many articles and reviews. He has been named food writer of the year by Bon Appetit magazine and to the Time , an annual list of the world's most influential people.
