mariani-molecular-andres-lol.jpgA month ago Esquire's John Mariani bashed molecular gastronomy. Then cookbook author Colman Andrews boldly wrote a defense. And now Mariani goes rogue and writes a bold retort over at the Daily Meal. Quote: "Many [chefs] speak to me both on and off the record how they think that [molecular and modernist] is at best a publicity stunt and at worst a way for uneducated cooks to avoid learning to cook... I guess I've never really understood why Ferran made olives into a slurpy ball on a spoon when I could just eat an olive." [TDM]
