Any serious foodie should know about Modernist Cuisine, the 6 volume tome that reveals the science behind the culinary techniques underlying modern cuisine. The work has been praised for its high-quality, innovative photographs, including cutaway images of food cooking in pans. Don't ask me how they did it, it's amazing.
Now, there's a traveling exhibition showcasing 100 of the photographs, displayed in large format, and it comes to The Tech between June 25th and September 1st. The exhibition is Free to the public.
"Photography lovers will appreciate the technical skill used to construct each image. Food lovers of all ages will salivate over the arresting images, and the curious will revel in the scientific insights that accompany many of the photos."
Afterwards, we'll walk over to Original Gravity Public House to grab some brews and grub. Original Gravity is very much in contrast to technical, modernist cooking. The menu is mostly sausages, and it's impossible to resist the duck fat fries. There are some grilled cheese options though.
I'm going to stop in a little early and check out the Reboot: Music exhibit as well. Let me know if you're interested in joining me for that.
