On eGullet, an online forum for cooking enthusiasts that played an important role in inspiring Nathan to undertake Modernist Cuisine, a lively discussion has emerged among people who are trying their hand at various recipes and techniques in the book. They have been sharing questions that have emerged naturally as they experiment with the dishes and share their hits and misses.
Coauthor Maxime Bilet and the rest of the Modernist Cuisine culinary team posted some answers today to a number of those questions on eGullets Cooking with Modernist Cuisine thread. The authors are excited about engaging the growing community of MC readers, and were working to build a simple forum here on ModernistCuisine.com to support that discussion. (If youre interested in volunteering as a forum moderator, please email us.) In the meantime, check out the insights the team offers at eGullet.
