    Perfect for the aspiring chef!

    I LOVE THIS BOOK! I loved how Tom walked through all the professional terms and jargon and explained it all well. He also discribed the techniques that chefs use to get the amazing flavors of the resturant. I've followed his method many times in the past week (when I bought the book) and both my husband and myself have noticed that my meals are much more flavorful and delicious! I would HIGHLY reccommend this book to any cook!

    An Excellent Culinary Guide

    Tom Colicchio, a genius NYC chef, shares the techniques that bring him success in the kitchen. Unlike many other books written by brilliant chefs, Think Like A Chef offers recipes and suggestions that are easy to incorporate into your everyday cooking. This book is an excellent source for learning how to cook using fresh ingredients that are readily available. Colicchio's self-taught techniques, which he has accumulated through many years of experience in the kitchen, will greatly enhance the culinary craft of his readers. I would recommend this book to anyone who spends time in the kitchen- from novice to culinary expert.

    You Can Think Like A Chef

    Beautiful pictures and complex dishes made simple make for an excellent tool to cook by. Authored by the 2000 James Beard Foundation's New York City Chef of the Year it makes you feel as if you CAN think and cook like a chef. Some interesting homespun yarns as well. Pick it up and try the recipes. A winner!

    Culinary School at Home

    I had heard so many good things about this book so I just had to buy it. I'm SO glad I did. I have learned so much. It is a good blend of college textbook meets cookbook. I first read it like a book, but use it now as a textbook.
