Modernist Cuisine at Home


Cook Like a Pro, Eat Like a King

Master the art of modernist cooking in your own kitchen

Our groundbreaking and encyclopedic six-volume publication Modernist Cuisine, with its decoding of cooking techniques, sophisticated recipes, and stunning photography, was a revelation for serious and aspiring chefs alike. Following on that spectacular success, Modernist Cuisine at home brings the movement to a wider audience, ensuring that even the enthusiastic amateur or beginner can benefit from cutting-edge innovation.

Destined to set a new standard for home cookbooks, Modernist Cuisine at Home is the ultimate companion for anyone and everyone who wants to master world-class culinary techniques in their own kitchens. In a lavishly illustrated guide, Nathan Myhrvold and Maxime Bilet, co-authors of the original volumes, revisit their themes for cooks of all skill levels, complete with all-new recipes, specially tailored to the most accessible ingredients and equipment.

Drawing on the same commitment to perfection that produced Modernist Cuisine, this publication applies the methods of Nathan Myhrvold’s Cooking Lab to classic home dishes, from hamburgers and wings to macaroni and cheese, as well as to delicacies such as pistachio clam chowder and sous vide snails.

The main 456-page volume includes all the essential information that any cook needs to stock and run a modern home kitchen; how-to features, ingredients advice, equipment guidance, and more than 400 new recipes, most with helpful step-by-step photos that make it easy to bring dining of the highest quality to your own dinner table. All recipes are also reprinted in a separate 230-page kitchen manual, lightweight and plastic-bound.

La obra ideal

Sergio,December 17, 2021
La obra ideal para dar ese siguiente paso en los fogones que ya dieron hace tiempo los mejores restaurantes del mundo... pero en tu casa. No solo se encontrarán con recetas en este libro, sino que también aprenderán los fundamentos de diversas técnicas modernistas de aplicación directa en la cocina. Aviso de que les hará desear tener ese equipamiento que les falta. La buena noticia es que eso supone una inversión menor de la que creen, inversión con un retorno espectacular en forma de sabores.
