Packed with info Feb. 7 2007
By Stephanie Manley - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Vinyl Bound
A cooking bible can be so helpful when it comes to unusual ingredients, and cooking techniques. I have often been left wondering, and been forced to go through multiple sources to find out information on a particular ingredient. For example did you know Cilantro is also known as Chinese Parsley?

Jeni Wright makes a book that is made for the kitchen. The cover of the book can be wiped off from splashes and splatters, as the cover was designed for use in the kitchen. I like that with each entry, she will tell you how to choose the ingredient, what it will taste like, how to store it, its preparation, and what it can be used for. Often small recipes are given to have demonstrate the use of the ingredient.

The book also spends much time going over meat of many varieties and dairy products. When covering the meat, she tells you about the different cuts of meat, what they should be ideally, and then how to prepare these cuts. A few recipes are given as well so you can prepare food. When it comes to the poultry she gives all of the information about cuts, what they should look like ideally, and how to prepare, but she also spends time telling you how to cut up a chicken, duck, and even pheasant.

21st Century Cook is a wonderful book packed with all sorts of information. With this book, I can easily find information about techniques and ingredients. I like that she covers the common, and not so common techniques and ingredients. This book would be a great addition to anyone's cooking library.
