Whether or not you’re into cooking with transglutaminase and sodium citrate at home, you’ve probably heard of—or at the very least seen the striking images from—local food wizard Nathan Myhrvold. Former chief technology officer at Microsoft and onetime postdoctoral cosmology researcher with Stephen Hawking, Myhrvold likes to play with his food. He has launched four books, including the impressive five-volume, 50-pound tome on modernist cooking techniques, with a follow-up bread book due out this year; wowed the late Anthony Bourdain; and created a Wonka-like buzz around its world-famous Bellevue food and science lab, Modernist Cuisine—which shares the name of his 2011 James Beard Award–winning book of food photography. Myhrvold opened the Modernist Cuisine gallery (10 a.m.–6 p.m. daily; free; downtown, 1403 First Ave.; 206.623.1226;, also devoted to his food photography, in November. In an era saturated with amateur food pics—thanks, Instagramviewers seem hungry enough for these photographs to support his expanding empire of galleries (his fourth, in La Jolla, California, is set to open soon). Myhrvold hopes his hypermagnified images of food, which often resemble distant galaxies or parched landscapes, such as the desert arches that seem to appear in an image of a crusty loaf of bread, will whet his viewers’ appetites for wonder. “You didn’t realize you were eating Monument Valley, did you?” he asks.
