Exhibit Hall 5
Austin Convention Center

Nathan Myhrvold, the former Microsoft CTO, broke all the rules when he coauthored and self-published Modernist Cuisine: The Art and Science of Cooking, an award-winning, six-volume, 2,438-page cookbook, recognized as a masterpiece. Nathan will discuss the role of technology and science in cooking, his creative processes and how innovation in the kitchen requires a healthy attitude about failure, his nontraditional cooking and publishing processes at The Cooking Lab, and the limitations and misconceptions of common cooking practices. Yahoo Food’s editor in chief and Cherry Bombe co-founder Kerry Diamond will lead the discussion with this tech-savvy, culinary visionary.
