Former chief technology officer of Microsoft Nathan Myhrvold has released a recipe book ‘to end all cookbooks’ according to Momofuku founder David Chang.
Analyzing the scientific processes behind the elements of cooking (heat, safety, health, tools, plants, muscle, etc;) the six-volume, 2,438-page book includes dishes like;
gleaming green pea butter, bagel broth and gel noodles, made from ingredients like liquid nitrogen and hydrocolloids – substances forming gel with water.
