This review is from: Ruhlman's Twenty: The Ideas and Techniques That Will Make You a Better Cook (Hardcover)If you are a cookbook addict, think you have too many cookbooks and are planning to pledge not to buy another cookbook as a New Year resolution... buy this one in a hurry before your resolution kicks in!
This is a very well written book. It illustrates basic techniques through recipes, highlights the logic behind them and their applicability in your day-to-day cooking.
Sounds boring or too basic? Think again. How many times do we cook without "thinking" just doing automatic gestures out of habit. How often do you start a recipe realizing in the middle that that you are missing a crucial ingredient? This book will help you to slow down, get organized, pause and think, reconsider some of your habits and build up your skills and knowledge.
Overall, a well worth investment for anyone who loves cooking and wish to become better at it.
