it was amazing
bookshelves: for-eating, reviewed

A brilliant dissertation on the science behind food. A must-read for geek foodies (or gourmet hackers or something). Well written and intriguing, on top of being exhaustively authoritative. And some very serious cooks also take this book as canon: I have seen this book cited in the references sections of at least half a dozen cook books, including ones by Rose Levy Beranbaum and Alton Brown.
