Modernist Cuisine Forums Integration

Recommended Posts

Welcome to those of you joining us from the Modernist Cuisine Forums!
 
We have a long history of engaging the modernist movement, dating back to reports on Heston Blumenthal's The Fat Duck in 2001, to Q&As with Blumenthal (2002), Grant Achatz (2003), Ferran Adrià (2004) and José Andrés (2005), among others. In 2004, eG Forums hosted a multi-faceted, multi-topic project covering the pre-opening activities at Alinea, where founders Achatz and Nick Kokonas discussed, among other details, the Alinea business plan, how it developed its famous serviceware and menu layout, and the design of the kitchen. Perhaps most relevant: eG Forums is where Nathan Myhrvold posted, on March 16, 2004, “I am wondering if anybody has sources for recipes for sous-vide cooking – which is to say, cooking done in sealed vacuum bags.” The genesis of the multi-volume book set Modernist Cuisine, as well as what has since been produced by the Modernist Cuisine team – including Modernist Cuisine at Home, and The Photography of Modernist Cuisine – can be traced to that moment. All of that to say how proud we are to announce our partnership with the team behind those remarkable works. 
 
The Modernist Cuisine Forums have been integrated directly into eG Forums: any search of eG Forums content will now also search forums posts that were previously made at the Modernist Cuisine Forums site, and a complete index of all recipe discussions from that site can be found here. In addition, all imported content has been tagged with the "modernist" tag to integrate it with our pre-existing modernist content, as well as with a special "Modernist Cuisine Forums" tag so that it's easy to find content previously located in those forums.
 
Privacy Protection and eG Forums Accounts
We respect the privacy of all of our members, and of those who registered at the Modernist Cuisine Forums: you can read the eG Forums Privacy Policy here.  As an added measure of privacy protection for those who were members of the Modernist Cuisine Forums, no personally-identifiable information was transferred: your email addresses and user IDs have both been anonymized, and no IP address or other related information was retained. A dummy account at the eG Forums was created for each participant in the Modernist Cuisine Forums (those who had made at least one post): to activate this account here at the eG Forums send an email from the account you registered at the Modernist Cuisine Forums to feedback@egullet.org with the username you would like to use here (if the username is already taken we'll write back to discuss your options). If you already had an eG Forums account and would like them merged, let us know that in your email.

      I was reminded the other day of the egg-in-plastic-wrap-poach method.

      GE is entering the SV field in an innovative way. They are doing a crowdfunding approach through one of their Innovation technology centers. The device itself is also innovative in that it uses a Inductive cooktop for the heating element with a wireless temperature sensor. It's also unique in that it does not include any type of water circulation.
       
      Here's a link to the crowdfunding site: https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/paragon-induction-cooktop/
       
      What does everybody think about this entry into the field? If nothing else it certainly shows that SV has gotten the attention of major appliance makers. A few weeks ago GE also announced that one of their new lines of stoves will have the same type of temperature control as this device uses so you can do SV on your stovetop.

      I made the Creme Anglaise recipe from Myhrvold Modernist Cuisine - it did look curdled and lumpy coming out of the zip lock bag as described in the recipe.
       
      I used my stick blender to smooth it out as instructed, but I think I blended it for too long, and it went from lumpy to smooth to watery. Did I make a fatal mistake of over blending the custard?
       
      The recipe does not say how to blend or when to stop.
       
      Hoping one of the gurus can give me guidance before I try this again.
       
      Many Thanks
      Luke

      Has anyone used Valrhona Absolut Crystal neutral glaze particularly to thicken a coulis or to glaze a tart?  If so, how did you like it and is there another glaze you think worked as well but is less expensive or can be purchased in smaller quantities?

      Hello.
      I would like to buy some pectinex ultra sp-l.
      However I am worried about the temperature during the shipping time.
      I read that the storage temperature should be between 2 and 8 C. It works best from 15 to 50 C, and if it stays a lot of time in 25 C, it will gradually be deactivated.
       
      It needs a week to come here (Greece), then will it affect its abilities?
       
      Do you know if I can find a document somewhere that explains the gradual loss of power as a function of time and temperature?
      Did you have any experience with pectinex not working well due to bad storage?
       
      Thanks.
