Their success is attributed to a refreshing approach that presents every recipe in complete visual sequences from start to finish. Every ingredient and every step is shown from above and in full color so that it's as true to life as possible — just like a real cooking class.

Editorial Reviews

Cookbook Digest - Elizabeth Lambert
Indian Basics adapts traditional Indian dishes for the busy North American lifestyle.
Saturday Evening Post - Jesika St. Clair
Most cookbooks offer little to no photography. And if there is a picture, it's usually the finished product...with a caption that might as well say, "This is what that thing you pulled out of the oven should look like." (The) My Cooking Class series is different. Rather than sitting in the corner, taunting your culinary efforts, the photos in these books fill the entire page and cover the journey step-by-step from raw ingredient to dinner.
Battle Creek Enquirer - James Sanford
This series includes books on Pasta, Vegetable, Chocolate, Sauce, Steaming, Middle Eastern, and Indian Basics. Each book includes 60-100 recipes, each with not just an image of the finished product, but photos of every step. Perfect for the family chef, foodie, or cookbook collector.
