December 12, 2012 - Primolicious LLC have just published Modernist Cooking Made Easy: Getting Started. Author Jason Logsdon once again manages to ease an emerging cooking technology from the realm of the professional chef into the kitchen of the home cook. Similar to the author's books on sous vide cooking, he takes the almost mystical technology of molecular gastronomy and presents it in a manner that makes it easy for the home cook to understand and execute. The book doesn't attempt to explain the science of modernist cooking, but instead focuses on how these new techniques and ingredients can be employed to create dishes with completely new flavors, aromas, textures and visual appeal. The recipes range from ones that will amaze reader's friends to another that will simply make it quicker and easier to make flavorful traditional gravy.
Reviewers say, "Modernist Cooking Made Easy lets me know that I CAN do it, and this book has all the steps to help me be successful!!" and "What makes this book unique is that dives right into this complex topic, but is written in a straight forward way so you can execute things you never thought you could." and "The author makes the reader believe he is talking directly to me."
The book introduces popular modernist techniques including emulsifying, foaming, gelling, spherification and thickening. Many molecular ingredients are covered such as agar agar, carrageenan, gelatin, lecithin, maltodextrin, methylcellulose, sodium alginate and xanthan gum. There are more than 80 recipes demonstrating how to use all of the various techniques and ingredients. To learn more about the book visit
