This Thursday, Feb. 21, 2013 photo shows Modernist Pantry co-owner Christopher Anderson using Modernist Pantry products to create flavor spheres in his kitchen in Eliot, ME. Anderson, a software developer by trade, launched Modernist Pantry with his wife, Janie Wang, two years ago when he couldn't find the ingredients needed for his culinary dabbling. Today, Modernist Pantry carries more than 300 ingredients in quantities tailored to the home kitchen, as well as equipment.  (AP Photo/Cheryl Senter)
