Hello, gurgling cod.

I'd like to ask you in what way modernist cooking is more imprecise than molecular gastronomy. I used the term very specifically because molecular gastronomy as a term for contemporary cooking techniques that use lab grade equipment and very precise controls is and always has been a terrifically misleading term that sounds vaguely 'sciencey,' but in the end is not a remotely appropriate descriptor for the techniques it describes (anyone who thinks otherwise is probably not a terribly good cook, linguist, or scientist). Could you suggest a better term than modernist cooking? If so, I'd be happy to carry the mantle. Thanks!
