With Ruhlman's Twenty he makes sense of just about anything and everything that can happen in a kitchen by boiling it all down to twenty elemental concepts, stunningly presented in concise and useful clarity."

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.
