The International Association of Culinary Professionals 2011 Public Event Registration
Global Roots of Modernist Cuisine
“Modern” cuisine is one of the hottest culinary trends today. But is it a perversion of cooking, edgy for edgy’s sake? This workshop will address how modern and traditional techniques and ingredients are much more similar than they are different. Chris Young, co-author with Dr. Nathan Myhrvold of the much-anticipated cookbook Modernist Cuisine, will review techniques such as sous vide and spherification that are the basis for this new wave of cooking. Nils Noren and Dave Arnold, the duo behind the French Culinary Institute’s influential tech blog Cooking Issues, take things a step further, exploring the latest advances in cooking.

Attendees will be asked to provide proof at the registration desk of their involvement in the culinary industry to participate, such as a business card.
