John Marini John Marini
Senior Marketing Manager
In celebration of Pi Day, one of our favorite days here at the Inkling office, we're featuring two delicious recipes from the Modernist Cuisine at Home cookbook: Flaky Pie Crust and Sous Vide Vanilla-Cinnamon Pastry Cream. Both of these pi-inspired recipes can be easily altered to incorporate different flavors and ingredients making the possibilities as endless as pi’s digits.

In celebration of Pi Day, one of our favorite days here at the Inkling office, we're featuring two delicious recipes from the Modernist Cuisine at Home cookbook: Flaky Pie Crust and Sous Vide Vanilla-Cinnamon Pastry Cream. Both of these pi-inspired recipes can be easily altered to incorporate different flavors and ingredients making the possibilities as endless as pi’s digits.

Every great pie starts with an amazing crust and Modernist Cuisine’s Flaky Pie Crust is up to the challenge. This pie crust recipe is the result of rigorous kitchen testing and experimentation and goes with virtually any filling you can dream up.

Flaky Pie Crust

Once you’ve completed your pie crust, you’ll need a delicious filling. We recommend trying Modernist Cuisine’s Sous Vide Vanilla-Cinnamon Pastry Cream, an easy and delicious cream pie filling.

Vanilla Pastry

You’ll notice that both of these recipes require you to prepare ingredients sous vide, a method of low-temperature cooking that often employs a hot water bath. The team at Modernist Cuisine have developed an easy and approachable way you can prepare food sous vide using just your kitchen sink, a Ziploc bag, and a kitchen thermometer. Watch Maxime Bilet, coauthor of Modernist Cuisine, show you how to use this simple and fun sous vide method:



If you’re interested in learning more about sous vide cooking, Modernist Cuisine at Home’s Cooking Sous Vide chapter has more details on this and other clever sous vide techniques, including how to cook sous vide in the oven or in an insulated cooler.

Not only will these two recipes help you make delicious pies, we think they’re especially appropriate given Modernist Cuisine at Home’s scientific approach to cooking. We hope you enjoy, and again, happy Pi Day!

Today, we’re excited to announce our partnership with Bridge, a designer-in-residence program organized by Designer Fund. Bridge pairs experienced designers with top startups in the San Francisco Bay Area. Designers work full-time at their startup and, once a week, come together to share skills and learn from inspirational speakers. We’re looking for talented designers to join us in our mission to make the world a smarter place by helping people learn.

At Inkling, we’re inventors. We designed the first version of our iPad app by building mocks on a jury-rigged, weighted cardboard model of the first iPad. Then we began solving for an even tougher problem: how can we get beautiful content onto iPads at scale? We solved it by building a powerful cloud-based publishing platform that solved tough but important technical challenges for the industry. Whether it’s visual or architectural, design has always been an integral part of who we are. You see it in our brand, our products, and the quality of everything we do to build engaging and delightful products.

Our product design team is made of people with diverse backgrounds. We learn from each other through our different skills: interaction design, visual design (check out our dribbble page!), coding and user research. Inkling designers have the unique opportunity to work on products for both consumer and enterprise users. Our product development process encourages strong collaboration among designers, engineers, product managers, marketing and other stakeholders.

Interested in learning more about the Inkling Product Design team and Bridge? Please visit designerfund.com/bridge. Applications close on March 2nd. Apply directly here, and feel free to contact bridge@designerfund.com with any questions. Come join us as we take our next steps in imagining the future of publishing. We look forward to hearing from you!
