Posted to Infographics  |  Tags: , ,  |  Nathan Yau

I found this on Serious Eats, but it looks like it’s from a book. Anyone know what book it is? This picture is awesome. Maybe one day, with enough practice, sweat, and tears, you will be able to tame the breath of the dragon.

Update: As noted in the comments, this comes from Modernist Cuisine, a super high-end book series on that art and science of cooking. Catch the video below on how this photograph and others like it were taken.
