Sure nothing can compare to Voc ed food service course at an adult education community to get hands on experience.And the meeting of new friends.But i wish i knew of this book at the time..This is an excellent book to learn as the pro's..Everthing a professional learns is in this book..great for gift giving and to have one as copy for all the professionals for a quickie refresher..

I purchased this book to give as a gift. It was exactly what I was looking for to introduce someone to cooking.

I am not a complete dummy when it comes to cooking.. I know basics and can cook most things with a recipe.. But this book helped me SO much! It covered a few basics I already knew but also gave me a lot of tips and techniques for things I had no clue about. It even gives pictures for visual learners (for example, showing pictures of exactly how to fold an omelet). I am very thankful for this book and I constantly go back to it for reference when I need to. It also gives some great, quick and easy recipes! HIGHLY recommend it to anyone who likes or wants to learn how to cook. Its easy to read and follow. Sometimes, I even find myself correcting my mother, who happens to be an excellent cook. Really love it!
