With the illuminating expertise that has made him one of the most esteemed food journalists, Ruhlman explains the hows and whys of each concept and reinforces those discoveries through 100 recipes for everything from soups to desserts, all detailed in over 300 photographs.

I am enjoying this book a lot. It is written with the idea that the readers knows nothing. It is a lot about the chemistry of cooking in easy to read language. This is a book I have been telling a lot of my friends about.

Same great writing as Ruhlman's other books, but with beautiful photographs by his wife. Good balance between recipes and essays.

Can use as back up to save receipes but not if you want full use for actual cooking that includes diagrams and those coffee table color photo granny

Love this volume! The recipes are good, complete with key illustrations, but the 'Tips & Techniques' are fantastic. I found his lessons to be absolutely basic and very sophisticated. An essential tool for anyone that really loves to cook more than just follow a recipe. Thank you Mr. Ruhlman.

Loved the breakdown and reasoning behind the techniques , but I wouldn't make most of the recipes . I don't want to hunt down ingredients to make most of the recipes and I love to cook/bake.
