A Modernist Dinner

This week at FDL we kicked off our Monday with a behind-the-scenes look at a dinner at the Modernist Cuisine Cooking Lab in Washington D.C. 

Writer Amy Watson gave us the inside scoop of what exciting dishes were served at the goodbye party held for esteemed chef and co-author of the award-winning Modernist Cuisine cookbook Maxime Bilet.

Of course, a dinner at the Modernist Cuisine kitchen is anything but ordinary. Dishes included ultrasonic fries, cryo-shucked oysters and pickled roses and an apple snowball. Are you hungry yet?

Curious about this fad, we took a look at the evolution of freshly pressed juices, which many believe to have curative properties. Who's drinking them? Everyone from celebrities to vegans and the guy next door. Check out what they are all about by reading our full article.
