An invaluable resource for students, cooks and professional chefs everywhere. A complete work of art!

we got this book as part of our starter package in first quarter. I can barely believe how much information is packed into it-- and fortified with charts and photos and step by step explanations. Definite must-use for a starter, as well as definitely for keeps.

This is the book I have used to get the career I have always wanted all my life. I used this through all my schooling.
