    Great book ! The step by step pictures drew me in at first and the variety of recipes. The other day, I actually got a chance to read some of the introductory tips and foundation recipes and was very impressed. I used the tips to make a basic broth out of my roasted chicken carcass.
    I was psyched and am looking forward to referring to this book again. Also looking to check out any other books by this author.
