IKEA published an exquisite cookbook (already sold out, of couse) showing the visual beauty of ingredients in a recipe.

Nathan Myhrvold does something equally interesting in his new cookbook, Modernist Cuisine. He claims to “reimagine food,” and his TED Talk explains what he means:
Myhrvold’s experiment is gorgeous, interesting, and explores the science behind cooking.
