Tickets to See Nathan at the JBF Include a Signed Copy of MC!

The James Beard Foundation in New York City is hosting a special event featuring Modernist Cuisine author Nathan Myhrvold on Wednesday, November 16, at 6:30 p.m. A ticket admits both you and a guest to a champagne reception with Dr. Myhrvold at the Beard House, a presentation on the revolution underway in the culinary arts, and a signed copy of the six-volume book and display case, including shipping to your home. A portion of the $650 all-inclusive ticket price will benefit the James Beard Foundation.

For tickets and more information, call 212.627.2308 or click here.

Why a Book Was Needed

In this video, Nathan passionately explains the need he perceived and is trying to fill with Modernist Cuisine. You may have heard his story before: having realized that no book included all of the science, techniques, and information out there on Modernist cooking, he strove to create the ultimate guide, including the best high-tech techniques from world-renowned chefs. But it’s different hearing Nathan tell it; his enthusiasm is catching. We bet you’ll be running to your set of books in no time.

Help us select by choosing your four favorite photos from among those below. Polls will close Thursday, September 15, 2011. After all, we have deadlines to meet!

Restaurants, and therefore chefs, are usually rated in stars. MC is actually no different. If you have had the chance to plunge into all six volumes, please come tell us on or, and give us your rating.

This Just In: Modernist Cuisine is fully in stock!

Five months and eight days after its release, Modernist Cuisine is fully in stock at Barnes & Noble and Amazon (as well as a growing number of independent bookstores and libraries–find one near you with our store locator).

Back orders, the bulk of the reason booksellers have been out of stock so long, have finally been fulfilled. We are still sending more and more copies from the printer in China each week, and we anticipate that we will continue seeing stores fully stocked through the holidays.

Both and are currently selling the book for less than $500. For the last several weeks, both retailers had listed it at the full price of $625. Many independent bookstores that have the book in stock are selling in the $525 price range.

Find a Copy of Modernist Cuisine Near You

Modernist Cuisine is one of those extraordinary books that is hard to truly appreciate until you have actually laid your hands on a copy. Until recently, that’s been pretty hard to do.

Now we invite you to use our new MC Locator feature to find a physical copy of the book at a bookstore or library near you. Just type in your zip code: a set of the six-volume work is probably closer than you’d think.

If you don’t see a location near you, check back in a month or two. More stores and libraries are receiving their copies every week, and we’ll be updating the list periodically.
