Overview

A cook's time in the kitchen is now even more productive and easy thanks to Tips Cooks Love from culinary authority Sur La Table and cookbook author Rick Rodgers.

Tips Cooks Love gives cooks more than 500 useful tips for cooking and preparation from the cookware and baking expert, Sur La Table. The easy-to-use book is organized alphabetically for quick answers. It includes tips about ingredients as well as cookware, tools, cooking methods, and other handy information for the busy home cook. For example, did you know that adding white chocolate to whipped cream provides elegant flavor and stabilizes the cream?

The book also features ten "deconstructed" recipes that offer lots of smart ideas illustrating ways to improve the dish and one's cooking. Six "technique" sections for quick and informative reference offer tips on tricky skills, such as braising, baking, and grilling, as well as some great charts to help cooks adapt a recipe to a different-size pan.

    Not Written by A Cook

    This book was definitely not written by someone who cooks. It's tidbits but not stuff that people who cook want to actually know.

    Haphazard

    Organization of this book is completely haphazard. Alpahetical organization is tough to get through.

    Miserable Organization

    The index is good but otherwise the organization was miserable.
