Today on THE FOOD SEEN, Anne McBride and Kent Kirshenbaum of the Experimental Cuisine Collective, introduce some of the speaking points of their 2011 symposium, entitled, "Foundation to Innovation". From gaining a core understanding of cooking basics on a molecular level, we contemplate a time when microwaves were new technology, to present day, where praciticing "molecular gastronomy" in the American kitchen and having full access to sous vide and immersion circulators may not be such a modern idea afterall.
