From its intriguing opening question―”How can we reasonably judge a meal?”―to its rewarding conclusion, this beautiful ebook Cooking: The Quintessential Art (PDF) picks up where Brillat-Savarin left off almost two centuries ago. Hervé This, a co-founder (with the late physicist Nicholas Kurti) of the new approach to studying the scientific basis of cooking known as molecular gastronomy, investigates the question of culinary beauty in a series of lively, playful, and erudite dialogues. Considering the place of cuisine in Western culture, This explores an astonishing variety of topics and elaborates on a revolutionary method for judging the art of cooking. Many of the ideas he introduces in this culinary romance are illustrated by dishes created by Pierre Gagnaire, whose engaging commentaries provide rare insights into the creative inspiration of one of the world’s foremost chefs. The result is a sophisticated, enthralling, freewheeling dinner party of an ebook that also makes a powerful case for openness and change in the way we think about food.
