Modernist Cuisine: The Art and Science of Cooking
If you are interested in getting into molecular gastronomy, this is the bible. While many of the recipes are inaccessible to the home cook, you will learn about different techniques such as sous vide, combi oven cooking, spherification, and much more. One of the my favorite recipes, which is accessible to home cooks, is the Korean chicken wings with gochujang sauce! It uses a unique batter which results in the crispiest wings I've ever tried!
