Nathan Myhrvold Is the Bruce Wayne of the Culinary World

(Ep 36) Nathan Myhrvold is the wildly successful businessman/scientist/tech guru behind Modernist Cuisine, a self-published culinary encyclopedia that demystifies the world of high-end gastronomy. Nathan also released a spinoff, Modernist Cuisine at Home, and he’s working on another volume focusing entirely on bread. During his chat with Helen and Greg, Myhrvold drops some knowledge about baking bread, building nuclear reactors, and barbecuing dinosaurs.
