    $425 … Probably a high-quality production job! But I can buy a great variety of other cookbooks for that price. And I will!

    Vanessa – Modernist Cuisine books are usually in the 600.00 range. The price is 375.00 right for preorder because the Pizza volumes only number 3, Modernist Cuisine, Modernist Bread five volume sets. There are hundreds/thousands of recipes tested and researched for years with extensive background on ingredients and more. It’s not for everyone.
