Essential basic techniques are explaned with easy-to-follow step-by-step photography. This is a definitive technique based cookbook, a vital addition for every kitchen library.
I have several cookbooks on my kitchen shelf that are collecting dust. Not this one! The pages are sticking together and the cover is falling off. I haven't failed with even 1 recipe yet, and I'm quite a novice.
My only quabble is that some of the terms used are British i.e., Castor Sugar is translated into Bakers Sugar. So, if you come across something that you've never heard of, you may have to do some research.
