We have something special for those of you who are in the Philippines!
In case you haven’t heard the team behind the much talked about Modernist Cuisine is coming out with a whole new set on bread. Modernist Bread promises to be a revolutionary new understanding of one of the most important staples of the human diet. Created by the team that published the award-winning Modernist Cuisine: The Art and Science of Cooking, this massive treasury of practical knowledge and groundbreaking techniques captures over four years of independent research and collaborations with leading industry professionals; the result is the most in-depth look at bread to date.
The set comes with 5 hardcover volumes and 1 spiral-bound kitchen manual all incased in a beautiful steel slipcase. The set is roughly 25kgs.
