The first tool of the trade.
If you're aspiring to be a chef or just want to get through a few dinners, this is definitely the place to start. This books gives you all the in depth knowledge of all the kitchen needs, the different types, which are better or worse. From baking needs to different type of pots or knives, it lists them all and tells you what to look for when picking the right ones for you. It also gives you a few of the basics to cooking, like carving ham or poultry, how to correctly cut and clean fish, perfectly poaching eggs, making the best tartlet crust, and soooooooo many others. Like making the best hollandaise sauce. A great reference book to get the right tools and learn the basics to cooking. It has a few simple recipes that is like a practice on the techniques it shows you but is more of a reference book than a cook book.
