Modernist Cuisine founder Nathan Myhrvold and head chef Francisco Migoya join Michael Harlan Turkell on Modernist BreadCrumbs, a special series taking a new look at one of the oldest staples of the human diet: bread. Each episode explores bread from a different angle; from its surprising and often complicated past, to the grains, tools, and microbes we use to make it, and the science behind every loaf. The show looks at the discoveries and techniques from Modernist Bread, as well as interviews with the scientists and bakers who are shaping the future of bread.

Customer Reviews

In depth full of useful information

Bread , everyone has eaten it , everyone desires it even if they are avoiding carbs or “gluten intolerant “ this is an excellent place to re educate one self on true facts and knowledge about bread, wheat and other grains along with input from experts this is a gold mine of good knowledge. The listener will be guided to try making their own or perhaps seek out real bread bakers or at least know what they are reading on the labels

Pretty inconsistent

It's a great idea for a show. The production doesn't really live up to it, though. A lot of the episodes are pretty hit-or-miss, essentially a random mash-up of long interviews. It's kind of like they called up everybody they could get to talk, recorded them, and strung them together unedited as a podcast.

The content with Nathan Myhrvold himself is great, but that's just a very small portion of the podcast itself.

You knead this podcast

This podcast is amazing for anyone who loves baking and/or eating bread. It's also full of some high-quality bread puns.
