About Modernist Cuisine

The Modernist Cuisine team is a collective of passionate chefs, scientists, researchers, photographers, engineers, machinists, editors, and marketing experts who are all dedicated to making, capturing, and thinking about food in new ways. Almost anything is possible at the Modernist Cuisine Lab, which is home to our state-of-the art research kitchen, photography and visual engineering studios, and full machine shop.

We share our discoveries through our in-house publishing division, The Cooking Lab, which has produced four award-winning books: Modernist Cuisine: The Art and Science of Cooking (2011), Modernist Cuisine at Home (2012), The Photography of Modernist Cuisine (2013), and Modernist Bread (2017).
