"...Nahan Myhrvold and his team, responsible last year for the food-publishing triumph of the decade, the six-volume Modernist Cuisine, have now scaled down and domesticated many of the advanced techniques...Of these, sous vide cooking is the most likely to find a place in the home kitchen, as it has in mine, and Modernist Cuisine at Home treats the subject in glorious detail."

Jeffery Steingarten on Modernist Cuisine at Home Vogue

"Myhrvold and co-author Maxime Bilet take pains to give highly detailed instructions on where to find and how to use products that might seem too fancy for the everyday home cook, as well as offering an enlightening perspective on commonplace kitchen tools, such as the many uses for the standard pressure cooker."
