Table of Contents | Modernist Cuisine: The Art and Science of Cooking
"A revolution is underway in art of cooking. Just as French Impressionists upended centuries of tradition, Modernist cuisine has in recent years blown through boundaries of culinary arts. Borrowing techniques from laboratory, pioneering chefs at world-renowned restaurants such as elBulli, The Fat Duck, Alinea & wd~50 have incorporated deeper understanding of science & advances in cooking technology into culinary art.

In Modernist Cuisine: The Art & Science of Cooking, Nathan Myhrvold, Chris Young & Maxime Bilet—scientists, inventors, & accomplished cooks in their own right—have created a massive, 5-volume 2,400-page set that reveals science-inspired techniques for preparing food that ranges from otherworldly to sublime. The authors—& 20-person team at The Cooking Lab—have achieved astounding new flavors & textures by using tools such as water baths, homogenizers, centrifuges & ingredients such as hydrocolloids, emulsifiers & enzymes. It is a work destined to reinvent cooking."

The Technium: Predicting the Present, First Five Years of Wired
"I was digging through some files the other day and found this document from 1997. It gathers a set of quotes from issues of Wired magazine in its first five years. I don't recall why I created this (or even if I did compile all of them), but I suspect it was for our fifth anniversary issue. I don't think we ever ran any of it. Reading it now it is clear that all predictions of the future are really just predictions of the present. Here it is in full:"
