food as art


I recently came across an article about new book on The Huffington Post and after I had picked my jaw up off of the floor, decided I needed to share these amazing photos and videos. But first, little more about the book:

Modernist Cuisine comprises the work of Nathan Myhrvold, Chris Young, and Maxime Bilet into a six-volume 2,400-page book that Chef David Chang calls "the cook book to end all cook books." These chefs (slash-scientists) employ a scientific and technical approach to both their cooking and the way they've put the book together. Photographer Ryan Matthew Smith used advanced technology to illustrate their book (and their blog) with incredible photos and videos.

Prepare to be blown away:
