Food geeks who want to be reading their 456-page Modernist Cuisine at Home cookbook all the time now have a way to do that: Nathan Myhrvold and his team have released their less-intimidating cookbook on a digital platform, designed for iPads and iPhones.
The Cooking Lab, in conjunction with Inkling, has released the original book with new digital-only features, including a recipe finder, yield converter (snazzy if you want to just make braised short ribs for one), videos, shopping links, and more.
An additional 260 recipes are also included, usually based on short variations in the print book, plus new photos and "pop tips" that disrupt the gorgeous photography but explain things like why you should pat food dry before putting it on the grill.
The digital cookbook is available for $79.99, a slight discount from its hardcover $115 price on Amazon. Now let's just see if Modernist Cuisine's $600, six-volume Art and Science of Cooking will be made available in the digital format.
