Modernist Cuisine: The Art and Science of Modernist Cooking ($625) is a collection of 1,500 recipes focusing on the science and chemistry of cuisine.

The authors of Modernist Cuisine have put together an exhaustive cookbook essential to any chef's kitchen and a wonderful gift for aspiring cooks. The recipes have been adapted from dishes by master chefs such as Grant Achatz, Ferran Adrià, Heston Blumenthal, David Chang, and David Kinch, the more than 3,200 photographs are stunning, and the spiral-bound books are spill resistant for easy kitchen use.
