Best part about that site is the ability to set a price watch. Almost any product on amazon will eventually go down to it's lowest price a second time, so you can set it to email you when it hits that level again. Got an amazing deal on my last tv.

amazing. what'll you kids think of next?
btw, i'm not expecting the modernist to go close-out. it's a vanity publication and the guy certainly does not need the money. i think he'd rather keep an impressive price and sell fewer books than discount to sell a few more.

Another bump, just read an awesome article on this guy in the latest issue of Wired.

Definitely need this book, but getting it as a gift for my girlfriend as she's an amazing cook and a scientist.

Recently saw a cheaper setup for doing sous vide at home, and intrigued to try it now.

I made the version out of Make magazine, and it has been working very well. IMO it's much better than most of the homemade versions which are basically putting a pid on a slowcooker.

Pretty fun experiment. Looks like this type of sous-vide can produce decent results. I think my temp was slightly lower than recommended b/c my yolk was a little less set than those in the recipe. Pics Just yolk with white cleaned off: Cut open: Bread crumbed & pan fried: My photography skills aren't a match for those in that article, and I didn't deep fry the yolk. Also didn't egg wash and bread the yolk, just rolled it in regular bread crumbs. I ended up putting it on some toast, but didn't take any pictures because I was too busy eating. It had the consistency of a custard.

Wow, nice job! Would you go out of your way to make it again? You've got me interested. Great photos, too.

Ha - thanks. I've wanted to try the stove-top sous vide for a while, and this egg recipe was an easy intro.

I would definitely make it again, but would deep fry it like in the recipe. It'd be a fun thing to serve others.

Generally though, it's a hell of a lot quicker and easier to just poach an egg if you're going to put it on toast. Having the fried crunch all around the yolk would be great.

Poached eggs are a favorite of mine; I especially enjoy them served over roasted asparagus. That egg recipe reminds me of an "updated" version of the classic egg's benedict in a previous issue of Fine Cooking. Essentially you are poaching the eggs and bacon in a ball of plastic wrap, chilling, coating in english muffin crumbs, and then deep frying. http://www.finecooking.com/recipes/d...naigrette.aspx
