I got my discount code 1 minutes after scanning the QR code and logging in, and my safari browser giving me an error...

if you've registered and not gotten your code, i would email or contact someone

Made contact. Contact acknowledged. Response promised. Still waiting..... 24 hours later. Web site seems very error-prone. Surprising for a team that seems on the cutting edge of everything.

I can't find a link to register on the site, is it in the book? I registered my MC set long time ago, but the site looked different then I believe

For those trying to register, look inside the back cover. AFAIK, scanning that QR code is the only way to do it. FYI, here's a prior thread on the subject. Discussion of registering @Home starts at Post #25.

I went to log in and was unable to do so. On clicking on the forgotten password link, it said to check my email. An email never came. I contacted them directly using the email from the web site and have to praise them on a really prompt response.

The app is good. For those of you who have seen the CIA professional chef book app, it is done in the same manner.

Inkling on the iPad allows you to download any title that you own so, no you only have to buy it once from Inkling.

Anyone know a source where I can buy just the Kitchen Manual separate? Mine got quite burned on the top of the stove!

Not sure you can buy it separately. I bought one last year on ebay for my 2nd location. Now that the digital version is out I will probably use that more. I hope the digital version of MC is not too far behind.

Granted I haven't read through all 10 pages of this thread, but what are the main differences between this and the full version, and as an amateur cook (albeit with long-term professional aspirations), will this version suffice?

 

As of now the only "modernist" stuff I do is sous vide/low temp cooking, some nitrous infusions, and I did just start using hydrocolloids for my bar syrups...

MC@H is a Modernist cookbook with helpful information on ingredients, equipment, and techniques to give the reader a basic understanding of the science behind the recipes.

 

MC is a five volume college-level textbook covering, as titled, the art and science of cooking, covering advanced food chemistry, the physics of heat and its implementation in various types of cooking equipment, and the history of the modernist cuisine movement. It also happens to have a few hundred recipes as examples.

Yeah. Modernist Cuisine at Home is definitely not a Cole's notes of Modernist Cuisine.

      I think about this subject fairly often, but especially when I am thinking about converting a slow cooker recipe to sous vide.  While I love the texture and juiciness I get with sous vide, I find that I often want a sauce.  And I have quite a few slow cooker recipes that I know have good sauces, but the meat tends to be a little on the dry side.  Thus my ideas about converting.  I thought this might be a topic with legs if other folks are having the same questions.  
       
      I'd like to make this recipe: Cranberry Pork Roast.  I found a nice little pork loin roast (2.88 lb.) and have rubbed it with Penzey's Ozark seasoning and sucked it (family lingo for vacuum bagging).  My thought is to sous vide it and make the sauce on the side and just serve it with/in/on top of the sauce.  Advice?  Thoughts?  Warnings?  Also, if you think that this is more of an IP thing tell me that, too.  And, considering that the sauce is sweet, would you do it in steps in the IP?  
       
      Thanks so much!
