Famed food TV personality Anthony Bourdain brought his ‘Parts Unknown’ to Seattle, Bellevue and Vashon Island for an episode that aired Sunday night [11/19/17]. Sorry, Amazon, he doesn't have a lot of nice things to say about you. [heh!]
A brief review of the episode, and most importantly, a recap of where he ate! Here at The Seattle Times. [look for it in a rerun, on demand or whatever streaming you enjoy - totally worth watching!]

"...Bourdain also crosses the bridge to Bellevue to geek out on bread with food scientist Nathan Myhrvold at his Modernist Cuisine lab."

So, for your wish list:

Modernist Bread: The Art and Science by Nathan Myhrvold and Francisco Migoyacover image: Modernist Bread. Official publication date, November 7, 2017.
This new book — stretching over 2,000 pages, with step-by-step images — chronicles the history and science of bread-making in depth. Stunning photography brings the complete story of bread to life --uncover its incredible history, loaves from every corner of the world, and the breath-taking beauty of scientific phenomena at work above and below the crust. This five-volume cookbook includes a lighter-weight binder of recipes to take into the kitchen.

Using Science and History to Unlock the Secrets of Bread. Nathan Myhrvold and Francisco Migoya’s myth-busting new book, is a call for bakers to experiment and innovate. A great article in The New York Times.

The Modernist Cuisine team is an interdisciplinary group in Bellevue, Washington, founded by Nathan Myhrvold. The team comprises scientists, research and development chefs, a full editorial and photography department, and business and marketing staff—all dedicated to advancing the science of the culinary arts through creativity and experimentation.

Stop in and take a look.

January 4 & 17, 2018. The Nix by Nathan Hill. cover image: The Nix


It’s 2011, and Samuel Andresen-Anderson hasn’t seen his mother, Faye, in decades—not since she abandoned the family when he was a boy. Now she’s reappeared, having committed an absurd crime that electrifies the nightly news and inflames a politically divided country. The media paints Faye as a radical hippie with a sordid past, but as far as Samuel knows, his mother was an ordinary girl who married her high-school sweetheart. Which version of his mother is true? Two facts are certain: she’s facing some serious charges, and she needs Samuel’s help.
