Alinea, the cookbook

Imagine it surrounded by peppery greens whose flavors are so intense that they seem to crystallize. Is Alinea’s food art? I have no desire to build any foams or scented air pillows, but the construction of that one, perfect bite seems like a worthy goal to me. Like a hundred and fifty? akinea

Buyers of the book will receive access to a website featuring video demonstrations, interviews, and an online forum that allows alinex to interact with Achatz and his team.
