Modernist Bread The worlds Largest Bread Book

The largest-known bread cookbook to date, Modernist Bread: The Art and Science by Nathan Myhrvold and Francisco Migoya is now available for preorder for £425 GBP. Modernist Bread will go on sale in May 2017. The ground-breaking publication will radically enhance and offer new insight into bread knowledge, practical, theoretical and historical. It is available for pre- order from Chef magazine

When Modernist Bread debuts in 2017, it will be the most in-depth bread cookbook published. It totals over 2,300 pages that span five volumes plus a kitchen manual. The set presented in a fingerprint resistant stainless steel case covers the science and global history of bread making, in addition to traditional and Modernist techniques, ingredients, and recipes. The Modernist Cuisine culinary team developed more than 1,500 new recipes for the book, rigorously testing each loaf in professional and home ovens to ensure accessibility for all types of baker.

Myhrvold stated, “Today there is no recognized Modernist bread movement, but there should be. This book is a combination of very practical knowledge and ideas that are right at the cutting edge of bread research to empower bakers of all persuasions. Some bakers will want to make traditional breads in old ways, and some will want to make those same breads in new ways.”

Modernist Bread reflects more than four years of independent research by Myhrvold and his team of chefs, scientists, photographers, and editors, as well as collaborations with and counsel from industry leaders around the world. The illustrious contributors include historians Jim Chevallier and Steven Kaplan, grain experts Dr. Stephen Jones and Maria Speck; scientists Stanley Cauvain and Carl Hoseney, bakers Emily Buehler, Ken Forkish, Richard Miscovich, Apollonia Poilâne, Peter Reinhart, and Didier Rosada.

The book is being published by The Cooking Lab, Myhrvold’s in-house publishing department and producer of the award-winning Modernist Cuisine: The Art and Science of Cooking, Modernist Cuisine at Home, and The Photography of Modernist Cuisine books.
