Excellent reference tool. This book offers comprehensive information about the science and art of preparing food. With attention given to both the foodstuffs and the equipment used to prepare them, all readers are bound to learn something new. Further, reading this book will allow one to better evaluate recipes so that fewer "new tries" end up in the garbage disposal. McGee's offering would be a welcome gift by all those who enjoy cooking....or eating.
