Impressionist paintings were characterized by quick brush strokes, an emphasis on the changing qualities of light with the passage of time, a strong sense of movement, unusual visual angles, and an interest in capturing contemporary life. At first, many art critics and viewers were openly hostile toward the Impressionists.
They saw the works' sketchy, unfinished qualities as evidence that the artists lacked "skill and knowledge. Manet chose not to exhibit with the rest of the group, but the art press nevertheless dubbed him "the chief ofthe School of Smudges and Spots. Newspapers of the era carried cartoons suggesting that the paintings were so horribly ugly that they. The cartoon suggests that pregnant women should not be allowed into Impressionist exhibits.

Half a century later, as the Impressionists were. August Escoffier codified French high-end recipes and kitchen management in the early 20th century, and his methods dominated haute cuisine for decades. Slowly, however, some parts of the press warmed to the.
As one writer put it, the vitriolic criticism aimed at the Impressionists was perhaps "the clumsy, somewhat primitive expression of a profound bewilderment. These supporters proselytized for theirfriends, sometimes drawing mockery themselves from the hostile critics.
Things changed dramatically for the Impressionists around The support of art dealers such as Paul Durand-Ruel a dynamic, inventive dealer who championed Monet, Renoir, Pissarro, and Sisley and Georges Charpentier a book publisher who wrote columns defending Impressionist painters and hosted one-man exhibitions for Renoir, Manet, Monet, and Sisley helped launch Impressionism into the mainstream art world.

By , fruit was added to satisfy the American taste for sweet flavors.
Millions of people did not have the time, the skills, or the help to cook for themselves-but they did have enough money to eat well. As busy people demanded food that required little or no preparation, a new type of food company rose to meet the need. Soft-drink manufacturers had already helped pave the way: In , Coca-. Cola introduced premixed, ready-to-drink sodas, and other beverage companies soon followed suit. These drinks were very different from the beverages that people made at home such as coffee, tea, or punch and were far more convenient.
These new beverages caught on quickly, creating a market in soft drinks that did not previously exist. Next came yogurt. The fermented milk product had been popular in places such as Greece, Bulgaria, and Turkey "yogurt" was originally a Turkish word for at least 4, years. Daniel Carasso was born in to a SephardicJewish family in. In , the family returned to Spain and started the Groupe Danone yogurt factory in Barcelona. Fleeing Nazi fascism, they moved to New York and changed the name of their company to the more American-sounding Dannon.

Then, to use the scraps left over after the hams were trimmed, he introduced Spam, a processed meat product that has been famousand infamous-ever since. He worked his way up in the kitchen of the Plaza Hotel in New York City, starting as a dishwasher and eventually rising to the position of head chef. It was successful-so much so that he was barraged with requests for his pasta sauces.
In , he opened a factory to produce. In , its owners. Next, some remarkable innovations took place in the restaurant sector, led by entrepreneurs such as Ray Kroc, Harland Sanders, and Dave Thomas. In , Kroc-a paper-cup salesman-met the. Similarly, Harland Sanders made fried chicken at the gas station that he ran in Corbin, Kentuckyand the chicken soon became more popular than the gasoline.
Dave Thomas, who would later start the Wendy's hamburger chain, took over four failing Kentucky Fried Chicken franchises in Columbus, Ohio, and turned them around by radically simplifying the menu, an idea that soon swept the budding industry. The era of fast food had begun. Another important breakthrough that occurred around the same time was the invention of the microwave. Raytheon immediately patented the idea of a microwave cooking device and created the first home microwave oven. At first, the appliances were clumsy and extremely expensive, but prices dropped and popularity grew.
In , the company sold 40, microwave ovens, but by sales had increased to 1 million ovens per year. The rise of the microwave worked in concert with the new prepared foods : the microwave was the ideal way to heat. The concept of quick, ready-to-eat food had been around for centuries. Many cultures had developed. What was different about the s fast-food trend. These changes were profound and far-reaching. For the. This was true for. This coincided with the. This early McDonald's restaurant sign boasts over 1million people served.
Today the chain serves about 52 million people every day. By March , McDonald's had. There is plenty of truth in these claims; the rise of prepared food and fast food did lead to many. This revolution utterly changed what people in developed and industrialized nations ate. Perhaps one of the reasons that high-end cuisine stayed relatively constant from Escoffier through the s is that people were already absorbing tremendous change in what they ate. The rise of fast food, supermarkets, and industrial food caused a revolution in people's everyday diets.
High-end restaurant food was, comparatively, an island of stability in what was otherwise a storm-tossed sea of culinary change. Scientists in a s food lab study raw vegetable specimens. For more on Clarence Bi rdseye's innovations in freezer tec hnology, see page Kraft developed a method for making pasteurized processed cheese, which led in part to the launch. It occurred at the low end of the market. This revolution wasn't sparked.
Plated Dishes Go to any fine restaurant in the world, and at least part of your meal will most likely arrive as an attractive arrangement of several kinds offood on a single platewhat chefs call a "plated dish. In fact, the plated dish is a relatively recent innovation. In the classic cuisine formalized by Escoffier see Early French Gastronomy, page 9 , food was broughtto the table on serving platters and dished onto plates there, either by the diner in causal settings or by the waiter or maitre.
Jean-Baptiste Troisgros, who frequently chatted with customers in the dining room, picked up on their desire to see some sort of "signature from the chef" on their plates.
He encouraged his sons to start plating food in the kitchen. They first began using these plates in for two dishes in particular: salmon in sorrel sauce a signature dish of the restaurant to this day and beef entrecote. The innovation was very well ' s. This The first plated dish was salmon in sorrel sauce. Chinese on their plate, more room to breathe," food, for instance, was traditionally served in a similar manhe says. Plating dishes in the kitchen has numerous advanner, with food placed on the table for people to serve themtages. It gives the chef more control and allows him to selves.
This "family-style" approach was also used to serve prepare more complicated dishes. From a restaurateur's Italian, German, and American food. The combination of aesthetic and economic the late s, becoming the first chefs in a top-quality advantages rapidly made plating popular.
Within a decade, restaurant to embrace the new trend. At the time, the Troisthe practice had spread throughout Europe and made its gros brothers were running the kitchen at the Hotel Moderne way to the United States. Cooking in a style that would later be In many restaurants, however, dessert is still served in the termed Nouvelle cuisine, they emphasized high-quality old style. Carts displaying whole cakes and other sweets are ingredients, lightness and simplicity, and creativity and selfrolled to the table before being cut.
Even eiBulli had a desert expression. The cheese course is another They felt constrained in their artistic expression, however, bastion of tradition; it, too, is often served from a cart because, at that time, tradition required the chef to place brought to the table. This was service aIa Plated dishes can now be found in restaurants in every part Russe, which meant the table was set with empty plates of the globe.
They are so common that it seems as though often with a centerpiece of fruit, flowers, or other decorafood has always been presented fully plated. But that is not tive elements , and guests were served tableside. Virtually the case. The plated dish was a radical innovation, albeit one all aspects of the presentation happened away from the that caught on.
It both led to a shift in American home cooking and paved the way for French restaurants in the U. Her love of French food was traditional: she disliked Nouvelle cuisine and spoke out against it. The study, published in , concluded that this was a true. The first wave ofN ouvelle cuisine represented a real revolution, analogous in some ways to Impressionism in its rebellion against the establishment and the attendant controversy. Many longcherished aspects ofEscoffier's grande cuisine, such as sauces made with meat extracts and thickened with flour-based roux, were discarded.
The system of the restaurant changed as well. Escoffier had championed service aIa Franfaise, in which empty plates were set before each diner and waiters served and carved food at the table. These 48 Stars! In the United States, the leading restaurant guide is the Zagat Survey. Unlike the Michelin guide or Gault Millau, Zagat's results are based on voting by the public.
Many consumers view the guide as being far more accurate and reliable than the others. Other American gastronomes shared Child 's wariness of the new movement. They were a big deal to chefs and food critics, who were steeped in the traditions of Ia grande cuisine, but they seem quite ordinary to us today.
High-end food was, ultimately, still high-end food,. As Nouvelle cuisine won the battle for the hearts and minds of both chefs and diners, the revolution matured into a new culinary establishment. Successive generations of chefs carried forward the torch of culinary innovation, but in an evolutionary rather than a revolutionary fashion. In part, that is because Nouvelle cuisine carved out some notion of independence for the chef. Escoffier and Careme before him had explicitly sought to establish rules and conventions. Nouvelle cuisine gave more leeway to the individual chef, so there seemed to be little incentive to rebel.
As young chefs rose to prominence, they extended the range of Nouvelle cuisine, although at that point it was no longer new. Joel Robuchon, named "chef of the century" by Gault Millau in , was known for relentless perfectionism. His cuisine was Nouvelle in the sense that it followed the ten commandments, but at the same time it was clearly his own. Much the same could be said of Fredy Girardet, the self-taught Swiss master chef who was often listed as the best chef in the world. Again, he was clearly staying inside the boundaries of Nouvelle cuisine but developing a unique repertoire.
Within the movement, some chefs were known for tending toward more unusual and daring foods and combinations. Michel Bras, Pierre Gagnaire, and Marc Veyrat took their own paths, each fiercely original and extremely inventive. Yet none of these chefs has been described as being outside the mainstream, and all were lauded by both the Michelin and Gault Millau guides. Outside of France, Nouvelle cuisine sometimes had an enormous impact and other times had barely any, depending on the country and its local gastronomic culture.
In the United States, Nouvelle cuisine was deeply influential, helping to inspire "New American" cuisine see next page. American chefs borrowed techniques from Nouvelle cuisine, but more important than any single technique or principle was the idea of revolution itself. American chefs weren't steeped in Ia grande cuisine; instead, they rebelled against the doldrums of mass-produced, uninspired American food. These chefs created a distinctive New American cuisine based on regional ingredients and food traditions, but with a clear nod to Nouvelle techniques.
New American Cuisine In the s, fine dining in the United States usually meant one oftwo things: either a steak house with a menu straight from the s, or a "Continental cuisine" restaurant that served ersatz, heavy, and uninspired food. Food writer Calvin Trill in lampooned this type of restaurant, saying that they might as well all have the same name: "La Maison de Ia Casa House. The two culinary movements shared many tenets: eschewing heavy stocks and sauces, showcasing fresh and local ingredients, and cooking those ingredients minimally or not at all.
The New American movement looked to the culinary traditions of many different regions for its inspiration, including California, the South and Southwest, and Cajun country. Through their experimentation, these chefs laid the groundwork for. Waters opened Chez Panisse in and hired Tower as head chef two years later. Working together in the kitchen, the two borrowed heavily from Nouvelle cuisine, but they also forged their own distinctly Californian style-which included high-end pizzas, whole baked garlic with white cheese and peasant bread, and cream offresh corn soup with crayfish butter.
Tower, a self-taught chef, had a brash confidence and a penchant for taking chances. More important, Waters, Tower, and subsequent chefs at Chez Panisse helped launch a revolution in how food was purchased, working directly with farmers and purveyors to acquire the best possible ingredients.
They became some of the first and most vocal proponents of small farms and. They also championed artisanal baked bread and had enormous influence on American bakers. As Waters wrote in her Chez Panisse Menu Cookbook, "We as a nation are so removed from any real involvement with the food we buy, cook, and consume. We have become alienated by the frozen foods and hygienically sealed bread. I want to stand in the supermarket aisles and implore. Today, many of the original leaders of the Nouvelle cuisine movement are retired from. In the later stages of Nouvelle cuisine and in New International cooking, innovation has mainly been limited to flavor combinations.
The first step was mining traditional regional cuisines. What started as Nouvelle cuisine is now one. Then new and exotic ingredients found their way onto menus. Wagyu beef and fish such as hamachi and taro tuna belly have always been. In , after two years in London, he returned to the U. While heading the kitchen atThe River Cafe, he worked diligently to purchase free-range chickens, ducks, and wild game including muskrat, beaver, and elk.
The River Cafe became the first New York restaurant to serve fresh buffalo in 70 years. Forgione also procured periwinkles, sea urchins, and other seafood from Hawaii, as well as specialty produce such as cattail shoots and fiddle head ferns.
In , he opened his own restaurant, An American Place, and continued to shine a spotlight on small farmers and seasonal ingredients. In Chicago, Charlie Trotter espoused a similar philosophy at his eponymous restaurant, which he opened in The famously perfectionistic chef combined French technique, Japanese-style presentation, and a strong emphasis on American ingredients, including Maine lobster, Alaskan halibut, Hudson Valley foie gras, and fresh organic vegetables. He pioneered both the craze for microgreens and the practice of serving diners at a table in the kitchen.
He was also one of the first high-end chefs to offer a vegetable tasting menu. Meanwhile, Prudhomme was making his name with a very different, but nevertheless ingredient-driven, menu. K-Paul's, which opened in , served dishes inspired by the Cajun and Creole communities of rural Louisiana, including jalapeno and. He treated Cajun and other Louisiana-based cuisine as a framework for innovation, and he soon attracted attention from the press and the public.
Prudhomme became a household name after he launched his line of spice blends, which are now distributed worldwide. Puck's name is equally recognizable today. His career took off in , when he began his seven-year tenure as chef at Ma Maison, becoming a favorite of Hollywood stars. When Puck opened Spago, in , it quickly became one ofthe most popular restaurants on the West Coast.
His culinary style, which he called "L. Provincial," was similar to Waters's and Tower's in emphasizing regional ingredients and a casual atmosphere. He specialized in haute pizzas with then-unusual toppings such as fresh duck, Santa Barbara shrimp, and smoked salmon with caviar and California-style dishes such as Sonoma baby lamb with braised greens and rosemary.
Puck spun his early success into an international empire that now includes high-end restaurants, a chain of bistros, a catering business, and consumer products such as his ubiquitous frozen pizzas. These New American pioneers became some ofthe first celebrity chefs. Their popularity coincided with the growing American interest in good food and made top-quality ingredients de rigueur in fine restaurants. The stage was set for the emergence of a new Modernist cuisine. There is no single driving force or capital city of New International.
But if one insisted on finding a representative city, it might be, of all places, Las Vegas, Nevada. At some point in the s, Las Vegas casino owners discovered that food was a great potential draw for clientele. Casinos dove into the food world with the same gusto and excess that they have shown in their billion-dollar hotels and glitzy theater shows. Casino owners courted restaurants and chefs that were considered to be among the greatest in the world. Today, Las Vegas has an incredible number of top chefs running restaurants across the culinary spectrum, from fast food to high end.
The majority. Las Vegas is the capital of bad taste in some ways, with ersatz copies of everything from the Eiffel Tower to an Egyptian pyramid. Underneath the fake glitz, Las Vegas has many serious restaurants. Another case could be made that New York is the center of New International cuisine.
And as the headquarters of the United Nations, New York is as close to being the capital of the world as we are ever. Others would argue that the best chef is Ducasse, who reinterpreted the food of Mediterranean France through a New International lens. He is arguably the most famous and influential chef in France today and also has global reach, with restaurants around the world. The discussion of which city is the center, or which chef is the best, is ultimately self-defeating, because the New International style isn't a movement so much as it is an entrenched orthodoxy.
There is no single city or country at its hub, because high-end cuisine has globalized. There is no single leader because you need a leader only if you are going somewhere. At this stage, changes in theN ew International style amount to a steady evolution of a mature discipline. Each chef is innovating, but to a large. Indeed, by Ducasse had 19 stars, and Robuchon had 25, summed across their restaurant empires. Like them, Vongerichten and several other chefs have empires of restaurants with different names, niches, and price points.
These restaurants are mostly high-end, with a set ofless formal dining options. Other major figures, such as Puck, have a few high-end restaurants, but their empires are weighted toward the low end, creating chains of cafes, fast-food outlets, and even canned food, following the lead ofEttore Boiardi. Perhaps the most surprising player is Robuchon, who came out of retirement to open a set of eight identically. International style is that well-respected chefs have in some ways taken the path of Harland Sanders and Ray Kroc, turning what had once been single restaurants into empires.
Ducasse started the trend, with the then-audacious goal of. The fundamental reason for this expansion is the same one that drove the fast-food revolution: customers like to have familiar names and brands. That is even true at the very high end. Why risk a local chef's attempt to be the best in. Catalonia's Costa Brava, had a rather ignominious start. It was built in as a miniature-golf. One example: did the abstract seascapes painted by Joseph Mallard William Turner in the s anticipate the Impressionists.
The proprietors,. If it's the latter, why did it take 30 years for the seeds he. Or, as one ophthalmologist has suggested, did Turner's late work simply tell us that his eyesight was clouded by cataracts? Numerous other theories have been advanced to explain the origins oflmpressionism. Hans and Marketta Schilling, named the establishSpanish. Within a few years, the miniature-golf course was retooled as a modest seaside bar and grill serving French food, with a French expatriate chef from Alsace.
Despite its remote location, the restaurant was ambitious. It was awarded its first. This is the stuff of great debate for art historians, and in many cases there is no single answerat least none that is universally accepted. At a far enough remove, all of these theories seem to have some merit. Major artistic movements are sometimes anticipated and certainly draw inspiration from others.
Movements are also a product of their times, and, in turn, they affect their worlds. Over time, influence occurs in all directions. Around the same time, the young Ferran Adria kitchen. Adria had no formal culinary training. Born in a suburb of Barcelona in , he became interested in cooking at the age of 17 while working as a dishwasher at a small French restaurant in a nearby town.
The chef there let him prepare the salads and made him memorize Escoffier. Soon Adria was working in kitchens around Spain. When he showed up at e! Bulli, he quickly impressed the staff and was hired in as chef de partie. It was named for the original owners' pet bulldogs, bulli in Spanish.
Starting in the mids, a number of culinary trends were set in motion that would ultimately lead to what we call the Modernist revolution in cuisine-a change in the techniques, aesthetics, and intellectual underpinnings of gastronomy. This revolution is a central theme of this book. We do not claim that our account here is the only way to make sense of the history of the Modernist revolution.
We focus on four major precursors to the revolution, but it goes without saying that some readers will have different accounts, versions, and analyses. Nevertheless, exploring these four developments provides a glimpse into the early days of the new cuisine and the factors that shaped it. At first, the food Adria prepared was quite conventional, as was befitting a French-style, Mediterranean-influenced seaside restaurant. The path from line cook to chef co mmonly begins with an internship, called a stage- a French word, pronounced "staajh," for a training co urse or work experience.
Stagiers, as the kitchen apprentices are known, typica lly work long hours and rece ive more experience and instruction than money. In the late s, Adria and Soler initiated the tradition of closing the restaurant for half the year.
Adria soon undertook a study of French Nouvelle cuisine, serving as a stagier under Georges Blanc in. Vonnas and Jacques Pic in Valence. Adria started revising his menu, initially working with the local. In , he visited the restaurant Chantecler in. By , Adria had earned e! Bulli a second Michelin star. The restaurant had. It is likely that nobody else in the room found that significant, but for Adria, those words were a major.
But Adria 's creativity soon took him in a different direction. Bread was the first casualty. Adria decreed in. Next to go was the dessert trolley, which disappeared in At the time, a dessert trolley was. In , Jean-George Vongerichten created a radical new cuisine based on vegetable juices, oil infusions, and vinaigrettes. This move was as dramatic a departure as anything happening at eiBulli at the time. But Vongerichten subsequently moved more to mainstream New International cooking, whereas Ferran Adria continued a path of relentless innovation. Bulli books are referred to as cookbooks, they contain no reCipes in the printed versions.
Instead, the pages are dedicated to Adria's analysis of what motivated his cuisine and how it evolved over two decades, from through Adria devotes almost as much space in the books to discussing ideas that didn't The intervertebral pads of tuna are one of the innovations in ingredients from eiBulli. Other e! Bulli innovations revolve around new ingredients. For example, while breaking down tuna for a dish, Adria noticed that these fish have intervertebral pads.
The small, circular, translucent pads are the tuna equivalent of the discs that all. When chefs philosophize, it tends to be about things such as. Adria and his team painstakingly removed the discs. Adria's books are quite different: they explicitly and self-consciously analyze the process of culinary creativity. A new idea for a dish isn't just a cool trick or a good flavor combination; it is part of an agenda to rethink the theory behind cuisine. The e! Bulli books are filled with hundreds of. Happy accidents and serendipity occurred at e!
Bulli, just as they do at other restaurants, but the. Bulli, these accidents were viewed through the lens of an analytical, intellec-. The menu at e! Bulli isn't just what's for dinner; it is cuisine as art. Adria's creative journey was a long one. The dishes that he produced in the late s and early s were nothing like his later creations, but each dish provides an insight into the evolution of his thinking as a chef. Many e! Bulli innovations were related to. In some cases, new ingredients and techniques allow Adria to do something that was previously unheard of.
In , for example, he developed his first savory foam: a white-bean espuma served with sea urchin in an urchin shell. Foams have, of course, long been used throughout classical cooking. In one of my favorite passages in the e! Bulli books, Adria writes about. He stopped by a kitchen store-the kind found in any suburban shopping mall-and. Bread, souffles, and some meringues are cooked foams that are served stiff. Other meringues, whipped cream, mousse, and sabayon are served. Adria was enthralled. He enthuses in his book about the unique texture and flavor that the Microplane grater gives food.
His discovery of this humble tool led to the creation of many new e!
Bulli dishes, including. His mission isn't to create a scientific cuisine, but rather to give diners a new experience with food,. Chefs love the fine-grained texture produced by this Microplane grater. Ferran Adria put this simple tool at the center of several creative dishes. Exotic laboratory equipment is but one means to that end; another is a humble little. Although Adria is known for his exotic and science-inspired techniques, his real interest is in. Foam has a familiar and very popular texture. Everyone has had a traditional foam such as whipped cream, and most people have liked it.
When Adria cast foam in a savory role, he created a new and unexpected experience, at once familiar and surprising. In haute cuisine up to that point, the vocabulary of that dialogue was constrained by tradition. And that dish generally is not repeated after the first season in which it is served. If you really like a dish at e! Bulli, enjoy it now, because chances are you will never have it again unless you make it yourself. Adria broke. What is the role of cocktails in the dining. The reexamination led to conceptual advances, such as the notion of" deconstruction. This intellectual approach to cuisine became central at e!
It wasn't enough for the food to be delicious; it also had to elicit thoughts and feelings. While other chefs might work to optimize the purely gastronomic qualities of their food, such as taste and texture, Adria had a higher goal. Did the food make people think, make them react emotionally? How did it change the dialogue?
Adria 's preferred term for his culinary style, "technoemotional" cuisine first coined in by Catalan journalist Pau Aren6s , reflects this dual goal. Culinary tech-. This deconstructed dish will keep its essence and will still be linked to. In sharp contrast to the overly serious formal cuisine of Escoffier, one of the central emotions that Adria sought to elicit. Laughing with surprise or seeing the wry humor in a culinary joke is a central part of the elBulli experience. Before Adria, chefs focused primarily on making dishes that were unique in their details-their specific combinations of flavors and textures.
Only rarely did chefs seek to make a dish that was the. For this game to be successful, it is essential that the diner has gastronomic turns the concept of deconstruction into mere "construction" based on nothing The result has a direct relationship with the diner's memory, in that although he may not see that he has been served a familiar dish,.
This is the direct opposite of the "signature dish " approach. Many chefs had created new takes on old dishes. Immature pine nuts from green pinecones are another example of innovative ingredients at eiBulli. Many chefs throughout history have created dishes that have an element of surprise, like baked Alaska, but they did not bui ld a cuisine with the goal of eliciting emotion at its foundation.
As a resu lt, their most innovative dishes were considered as nothing more than parlor tricks. This kind of reference is a so rt of seco nd co usin to deconstruction. Self-conscious invention is a familiar approach in other arts, such as literature, where it is com-. Indeed, literary allusions and. Every morning he would greet each cook with a handshake, and depending on the time, a smile. As he approached on this day, I noticed something in his hand. He placed the October issue of Gourmet on the stainless steel counter in front of me and asked me to open to the page marked with a yellow sticky note.
I thumbed to the page, finding an unfamiliar, gruff-looking chef surrounded by floating oranges. Who is this guy, I wondered In a short time, that guy would become known as the best chef in the world. His name was Ferran Adria. Chef Keller looked down at the magazine and spoke softly.
