This box, on the floor of Amanda Hesser's apartment, popped up in my Twitter feed. As you might expect, it contains one of the newly printed (corrected?) copies of Modernist Cuisine. The Cod has raised an eyebrow or three about the entire MC project. (Too lazy for links, but if you Google "gurgling" + "modernist," and skip the Ezra Pound fanfic, you'll find the eyebrows.) Despite my reservations, MC is pretty clearly the cookbook publishing event of the year(s). In the context of the preceding discussion of cookbook apps for the iPad et al, it is interesting that Nathan Myrhvold, the guy responsible for MC, made his jillions in the software industry, but chose not only print for his big opus, but massive, enormous, unwieldy print. What's up with that?
