Good Book for a Good Price
on August 18, 2009
There are three versions of this book, this one, Professional Cooking for Canadian Chefs, and Gisslen Professional Cooking 6th Edition w/CD-ROM + Professional Cooking 6th Edition Study Guide - SET. Each is priced differently, and that's about the extent of the differences (Okay, to be fair, I neither have nor have seen the Study Guide. It is however just another book. Unless it can tell you how the recipe you prepared is supposed to taste, I doubt it could possibly be contributing another hundred's worth to the discourse).
Cooking is all about economy; you might as well start here. Save yourself a few bucks and get the Trade version. Use the extra cash to burn some eggs and overcook a little fish.
