Alinea cooker

Posted to Miscellaneous  |  Tags: ,  |  Nathan Yau

Alinea is a restaurant by Grant Achatz known for deconstructing flavors and piecing them together again for bites of deliciousness. They have a cookbook that describes how they make their food, but the recipes are so complex that no casual cook would ever try them. I actually have a copy myself, and it’s never gone past the coffee table.

Allen Hemberger on the other hand went through every recipe. He described his process in the video above.

Hemberger’s path from mild interest, to obsession, to pleasant realization seems familiar. [via kottke]
