Nathan Myhrvold is the founder of Modernist Cuisine and lead author of Modernist Cuisine: The Art and Science of Cooking, Modernist Cuisine at Home, The Photography of Modernist Cuisine, Modernist Bread, and the forthcoming Modernist Pizza. Nathan routinely pushes the boundaries of culinary science as a chef, scientist, and photographer.

After retiring from Microsoft in 1999, Myhrvold founded Intellectual Ventures, where he is currently CEO, and focused more time on the pursuit of several lifelong interests, such as cooking and photography. Inspired by the void in literature about the cutting-edge techniques used in the world’s best restaurants, he assembled the Modernist Cuisine team to share the beauty and science of cooking with others. The team’s self-published books have captivated readers and garnered awards around the world. In 2017 he opened Modernist Cuisine Gallery, which has locations in Las Vegas, New Orleans, Seattle, and La Jolla.
