    Modernist Cuisine: The Art and Science of Cooking

    so i was reading my march mens health issue in there is a article on cooking the best meat and potatoes you've ever tasted heres a link
    http://www.menshealth.com/nutrition/steak-cooking-tips
    they make referance to Nathan Myhrvold's upcoming encyclopedia Modernist Cuisine: The Art and Science of Cooking coming out in april i think has anyone else looked at this, I love cook books or any book on cooking but this guy is at 462.93 on amazon for the six volume hardcover set seems way out of my price range to buy on a whim but it is very appealing to me. what do you guys think of this does it look like it could be worth the extra dough. Here is a link to amazon http://www.amazon.com/Modernist-Cuis...9283417&sr=1-1

    I've been following this a bit and do think it is going to be a seminal cooking reference. This is a product that comes out of: good timing, boat loads of internet cash, a brilliant scientist turned cook, the best equipped test kitchen in the country, and dozens of professional cooks. If you have a week of free time you can read the many thread over the past six years on eGullet where this has been brewing. Plus, they have hired great photographers and graphic designers to make the book as sexy has humanly possible. The photos are stunning.

    Check out these three YouTube videos from the MC effort. They have spared no expense.
