Easy to follow; don't let the size of the book fool you
on May 8, 2017
Recipe may seems lengthy but it is much easier to follow compared with online recipes because the instructions are very detailed. There is no reading between the line. Follow it like a robot and you will have an amazing meal.
A lot of recipes have 2 variations. You can either use can/pre cook substitution to omit some lengthy stock cooking. Or if you just want to cook from scratch so you know for sure what's in your food, she also have them in the book as well.
I found just vol 1 is enough to improve your understanding of cooking. You would be able to go back to many old recipes and improve their taste just by the few things that you learn (esp stock) from this book.
