Nathan: I cant thank you enough for taking the time out of your busy life to add to this thead. So many thanks!
I have print 2 of MC and enjoy reading it regularly. I confess I havent made that many items out of it, but ive taken your ideas and added it to some day-to-day cooking that suits me, especially my personal studies on SV meat.
I also appreciate the e-mail MC Cooking New Recipes. Thanks again to you and your team for this. They are consistently stunning.
I look forward to MC at Home and plan to get it at Amazon with the Kudos to eGullet.
I follow the British show Great British Menu, now in its 7th season. Top British Chefs compete for a week and one goes on to the finals and 4 dishes are selected for the 'themed banquet' this year of course its the Olympics.
I love it when they use Modernist Techniques and I try to Spy Down there cooking equipment and personal knives.
This year in the 6th week a Chef used an evaporator: it was as Buchi with two large digital controllers at eye height. I fortunately did not see it at the Buchi site, about 8 k for this. But well, two might be good: one for Cuisine and one for eau de vie.
You may enjoy this tid-bit: the chef in question could not get the flask to lower to the water bath. Everything else seemed fine. It was on but no go: he frantically called his kitchen, smartly on an iPhone and got them to call the distributor. Somewhat Red-Cheeked he was told to properly pug it in! Perhaps it had two plug: one for the display and one for the mechanical parts.
