Review: I've been in the Food and Hospitality industry for over 25 years now, and attended the CIA over 15 years ago. Back then I could only *DREAM* that a book like this existed, and openly lamented that my school did not have a Food Science class that taught students this style of cooking. I dreamed that I could apply my knowledge, skills, and natural curiosity to this level and style of cooking, but there was no one in the US to mentor or train me on it at the time. El Bulli in Spain was just beginning to dabble with this level of cooking techniques and sciences. Now, Molecular Gastronomy is everywhere! I haven't tested many of these recipes, but of the three that I have tried (chocolate air, White Chocolate Spheres and Pinot Noir Jelly Cubes,) all three came out exactly as intended. This book is most DEFINITELY not for the amateur cook at all. This level of cooking, while attainable for everyone if you follow each recipe to the exact nanogram, is NOT easy and requires a lot of specialty equipment and ingredients; requires a LOT of knowledge of food; strong math skills; strong sanitation skills; a strong working understanding of basic cooking techniques and science, and most of all: a LOT of patience. To put it into simple, albeit joking terms: this level of cooking is how Nobel award winning biochemists cook at home. All of that said however, it's an incredible book that is very well written with very few typos that I've found so far. Recipes are very clear, concise and consistent. Almost every recipe provides step by step instruction with almost every one having a photo attached to show you EXACTLY what you need to do. The end results are shown in a beautiful photograph that makes you think sometimes you're looking at actual art. This is more of a text book, and less of a cook-book, but if you're interested in Culinary Science, want to play around, have the patience to experiment and the money to spend on special equipment and ingredients, give it a shot!

Review: The first time I received it without packing, resulting in a damaged product. I returned it and ordered a new one which was in the exact same shape: damaged. In the description it claims to be a new product but in real it looks like it has been used heavily. Do not buy it! (in The Netherlands)

    Description: Herve This (pronounced Teess) is an internationally renowned chemist, a popular French television personality, a bestselling cookbook author, a longtime collaborator with the famed French chef Pierre Gagnaire, and the only person to hold a doctorate in molecular gastronomy, a cutting-edge field he pioneered. Bringing the instruments and experimental techniques of the laboratory into the kitchen, This uses recent research in the chemistry, physics, and biology of food to challenge traditional ideas about cooking and eating. What he discovers will entertain, instruct, and intrigue cooks, gourmets, and scientists alike. Molecular Gastronomy, This's first work to appear in English, is filled with practical tips, provocative suggestions, and penetrating insights. This begins by reexamining and debunking a variety of time-honored rules and dictums about cooking and presents new and improved ways of preparing a variety of dishes from quiches and quenelles to steak and hard-boiled eggs. He goes on to discuss the physiology of flavor and explores how the brain perceives tastes, how chewing affects food, and how the tongue reacts to various stimuli. Examining the molecular properties of bread, ham, foie gras, and champagne, the book analyzes what happens as they are baked, cured, cooked, and chilled. Looking to the future, Herve This imagines new cooking methods and proposes novel dishes. A chocolate mousse without eggs? A flourless chocolate cake baked in the microwave? Molecular Gastronomy explains how to make them. This also shows us how to cook perfect French fries, why a souffle rises and falls, how long to cool champagne, when to season a steak, the right way to cook pasta, how the shape of a wine glass affects the taste of wine, why chocolate turns white, and how salt modifies tastes.

  • Waterstones Molecular Tools and Infectious Disease Epidemiology

    Price: £58.99

    Brand: Waterstones

     

    Description: Molecular Tools and Infectious Disease Epidemiology examines the opportunities and methodologic challenges in the application of modern molecular genetic and biologic techniques to infectious disease epidemiology. The application of these techniques dramatically improves the measurement of disease and putative risk factors, increasing our ability to detect and track outbreaks, identify risk factors and detect new infectious agents. However, integration of these techniques into epidemiologic studies also poses new challenges in the design, conduct, and analysis. This book presents the key points of consideration when integrating molecular biology and epidemiology; discusses how using molecular tools in epidemiologic research affects program design and conduct; considers the ethical concerns that arise in molecular epidemiologic studies; and provides a context for understanding and interpreting scientific literature as a foundation for subsequent practical experience in the laboratory and in the field. The book is recommended for graduate and advanced undergraduate students studying infectious disease epidemiology and molecular epidemiology; and for the epidemiologist wishing to integrate molecular techniques into his or her studies.
