Last night, I enjoyed the rare privilege of experiencing a 29-course tasting menu prepared by the Modernist Cuisine team. The dinner was spectacular and showcased some of the most innovative and sophisticated cooking techniques on the planet. Often the flavors were new and complex as well, though now and then, a dish would surprise me with a familiar taste from childhood or years past. I don’t dare try to describe every plate, but the majority of the dishes they served can be found in the book, in one form or another.
I’d like to give a big Thank You to the Modernist Cuisine team for hosting such a spectacular evening, and for their continued generosity.
