How do you eat an Elephant?

The package that I received a few days ago was even more gargantuan than I had imagined. There it was, Modernist Cuisine, the books that I had been dreaming about for a long time. It took my sous chef  and myself to get it to my car, taking turns carrying it from the kitchen. It was back-breaking work. I have to say it is all a little overwhelming. So much to see, explore, and learn.

I plan on tackling it systematically, studying it like a college course. I have taught myself a lot of the knowledge over the years but it is great to have all of the information complied in one not-so compact resource. It took me ten minutes just to get through the layers of tape and cardboard. My Mom says “how do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time till it’s done.” I agree with her. It is an adventure that I am happy to share with you.
