Microwave cooking (not reheating)

Creating a Dish, Not Just Reheating One

ALLOW me to introduce you to your microwave. I met mine just the other week.

This mysterious, stigmatized box has acquired a reputation as a mere popcorn popper and leftover heater-upper. But it can do so much more. It can fry. It can dry. It can produce a perfectly steamed whole bass with ginger and scallions, topped with fried parsley. Just give it four minutes.

Game-changing new uses like that were brought to my attention with the release of “Modernist Cuisine at Home,” a home-cook-friendly iteration of “Modernist Cuisine,” the six-volume megabook on the science of contemporary cooking that routinely calls for tools like a centrifuge. The “At Home” recipes can still be quite demanding (a 45-minute scrambled egg, a 29-hour roast chicken), but when I got to the chapter on the microwave, my world flipped on its axis.

“The microwave tends to be an underappreciated thing in the kitchen,” the author Nathan Myhrvold told me over the phone. “It’s overused for one set of tasks and underused for another.”

Microwave cooking — not reheating, but cooking — can be particularly healthful, something to keep in mind in the wake of the holiday cookie overload. Steaming involves no added fat, and frying requires just a swipe of oil.

However, the fact remains that, simply because you can jiggle an atomic particle to the point that it heats itself up, does not mean you are creating superior cuisine. I don't care what the $100 dollar book says. Good food requires fire.

Besides, what if there is a holocaust or Armageddon type of deal? What then? There will be no electricity and, therefore, no microwaves. Are we to starve or be reduced to eating raw food to survive? You have to think long-term about stuff like this.

I'm sure I don't even want to know the answer to this, but you do realize that heating food up by any method is "jiggling molecules" to heat it up, right?
