I am a current culinary student and at last I have found a book that is perfect learning tool for my studies. This book is perfect, it has it all, great illustrations, good lay out & very clear instruction. Modern Garde Manger was obviously written by guys that know how to teach their subject. The chapters on meats, game, poultry & fish are the best I have ever seen, This book is truly five star material. A must for aspiring chefs.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Its the best textbook I'v seen during my time at culinary school. There are several very good culinary books avaliable for a student but Modern Garde Manger covers many additional skills the other texts don't offer. Cheesemaking, dough, and ice sculpting, food preservation, food show competitions, the preparation of fois gras and other offal, along with the traditionally included subjects makes this book head and shoulders above the others. I'm so glad our teachers just adopted it for our garde manger classWas this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
