My Life in food: Nathan Myrhrvold

By the time Myrhrvold was 13, he was already cooking Thanksgiving dinners for his family. Food and its photography soon became twin obsessions. He initially worked as the chief technology officer for Microsoft, taking leaves of absence to earn his culinary diploma from the Ecole de Cuisine La Varenne in France. His move from technology to food was not, however, completed until he released his justly famed paeans to modern cooking techniques, Modernist Cuisine and Modernist Cuisine at Home. His latest book, The Photography of Modernist Cuisine, is published 22 October (£80).
