Editorial Reviews

The New York Times Book Review - William Grimes
Anyone who has dithered over salmon on the grill or a roasting leg of lamb, fearful that medium-rare is sneakily becoming medium, will appreciate Done…can you tell when blond becomes brown, when brown becomes dark brown, and when you have gone too far and burned the darned thing? Peterson will hold your hand and guide you through.
From the Publisher
"I'm betting each of us can think of someone in our lives who would love this book - and most likely that "someone" is ourselves! ...This is one of those books to keep handy next to the stove for quick reference - it will give confidence and reassurance to new and veteran home cooks alike." - The Kitchn
