Review by EvaElisabeth
This is a fun read for anyone into cooking with some extremely useful information. It's put together in a somewhat haphazard manner like someone conflated two different books.
Review by jontseng
A cut above the colour oversimiplication of most Dorling Kindersley work. Notable an outstanding contributor list, with interesting sections on foams and Marcus Wareing's first appearance in print.
Review by irisiris
Whoa, cook: you are all that. "The Cook's Book" is a manual: how to tenderize and whip, how to braise and caramelize, how to make the perfect French-style scrambled eggs (hint: "French" means "add an extra stick of butter"), how to pull pork. Every step is illustrated thoroughly with gorgeous photos, and every chapter is written by an expert in the field: Charlie Trotter does veggies, Pierre Herme makes pastries, Rick Bayless teaches Mexican, etc.
