    Orange, strawberries, & the fish

    Pot roast

    Sorry, but the fish looks like it threw up while dying, and I’ve never found that dish appealing as a result 🙂

    For the hamburger pic, I think it’s actually more interesting if you include the explanatory text labels as well. If you can, please print it on one side of the sheet with the text and on the other side without.

    For purposes of visual effect and concept, I think the Strawberry, Orange and Duck Aupicius. They embody what the food of MC means to me – as in there is more than meets the eye, yet it is very cleverly protrayed.

    The whole concept of MC is stunning. But here in South Africa, it is a very expensive investment….!!! All the photography is unbelievably stunning. The frying egg story, I thought was quite arb. Otherwise, Well done guys. 🙂

    my top three are:
    Pot roast cut­away from chap­ter 7 on Traditional Cooking in Volume 2
    Levitating burger from Mushroom Swiss Burger plated-dish recipe in Volume 5
    Duck Apicius from plated-dish recipe in Volume 5

    A visual explanation of what is going on is more of what I needed to continue my personal culinary experience and educational journey. I am very appreciative of the level work that went it to creating this massive expression of the current state of the art and science of culinary arts.

    Any chance if we mail you a self-addressed, stamped envelope we could get these if we purchased MC 1st edition?

      Thanks for the suggestion. We’re investigating that possibility. Stay tuned for an update in the not-too-distant future.
