21st Century Cook
The Bible of Ingredients, Terms, Tools & TechniquesBook - 2006
Every cook needs this ultimate quick reference to today’s ingredients, terms, tools, and techniques. It’s thoroughly modern, in a handy format with ribbon markers and a wipe-down, splash-proof cover, and caters to a new and highly motivated market interested in celebrity chefs and the popular Food Network shows. But it’s the information inside that’s truly amazing: nearly 500 pages of instructions cover everything from sautéing a potato and filleting a fish to storing fresh herbs and selecting the right pan—and it goes A to Z through meats, poultry, fruits, vegetables, spices, and more. There’s lots of advice on ethnic cooking, too.
