After both of these, Myhrvold will next help you part with your money with his six volume tome on how to brew the best coffee and tea. But it will include both hot and iced.


I believe Modernist BBQ will be the next thing: plenty of variables, a lot of perceived „voodoo“, hugely popular …

Don't give him any ideas!!

 

That article linked to by @rotuts is annoying enough; of course $1 pizza here sucks - that's a fairly well-known thing.

and indeed :

 

""  

In his opinion, New York City is relying way too much on tradition and living off reputations instead of trying to present the best pies possible today. 
"Most of the old-school New York ones aren't that great, which is also part of our general finding around the world: famous old pizzerias are not up to their reputation. So if you go to a place in New York, and they say, 'We've been doing this for 50 years' -- UH-OH!" ""
 
N.B.:
 
""  our general finding around the world  "
 
see ?

Right - a restaurant which has been in biz for 50 years really ought to worry about what a billionaire has to say.

I don't know where he went, but the 50 year old NY pizza places I know and go to are pretty good. All making NY style pizza, of course.

 

Lombardi's (I haven't been in years)

Totonno's

Patsy's (the OG)

Arturo's (coal oven - they like to "char")

No - they're not Neapolitan pies, they're not Ken Forkish, but...they're all good NY style pies.

There’s classic and there’s modernist. 

 

But it seems to me that modernist here is often referring to that Neapolitan style of pizza, which all things considered, isn't really modern?

 

So is Anthony at Una Pizza creating modernist pizza, when he's making his dough sans yeast, they way it might've been made before commercial yeast was even invented?

Looking at Forkish's book right now, the only thing "modern" about his pizzas are some of the weird topping combos he's invented.

 

Like how about "Golden Beet and Duck Breast Prosciutto Pizza?" If you tried to serve this to someone in Naples, you better make sure you're always facing the door when you sit down to eat.

There's a grand piano behind me when I take this picture, so since the door stops mean no big books in the middle  Piano music goes here (all those wire bound books are Final Fantasy piano books, not sure why that Guitar book is here :))
