Seattle University Sophomore Wins Modernist Cuisine Dorm Room Dinner Party Contest

Modernist Cuisine at Home, a collection of 400 recipes designed for home cooks, contains step-by-step directions for producing Korean-style chicken wings and making beef jerky in the microwave. But when we asked area college students to submit cooking show videos demonstrating why they should win a Modernist Cuisine dorm room dinner party, we kept our instructions minimal. "Wow us," we suggested.

James Cashman, a film studies and creative writing major at Seattle University, did exactly that. The sophomore made a sous vide salmon in his 11-by-16 foot dorm room, using only a plastic cooler, microwave and sink. Entrants were required to use at least one ingredient from a list of five favorite college foods: Cashman used them all.

In addition to winning a Modernist Cuisine dinner party for eight of his closest friends, Cashman also won a copy of Modernist Cuisine at Home, a PolyScience Sous Vide Professional CREATIIVE Series immersion circulator, a PolyScience Smoking Gun and an iSi Whipping Siphon for his trouble.
