Following his highly informative ” On Food and Cooking” and the whimsical “Curious Cook”, Harold McGee has come up with another essential addition to the cook’s library.
This is an exhaustive description of techniques and ingredients that will enable anyone to get the best result from their ideas or other people’s recipes.
While some of it is quite basic, valuable to the beginner, there are some gems and insights into the cooking processes that will reward any experienced reader/cook.
The book covers food, resources, tools, appliances, cooking techniques, ingredients, safety and more. There are even recipes!!
This is a reference book without glossy photos from the ‘food stylists’ so will appeal to people with an interest in getting it right and making it better!
Unfortunately, the Curious Cook is out of print and only available second hand but McGee’s original book 2nd Edition is also available.
