“I have found this very useful, which surprised me since I've been cooking for over 30 years!”
“I have been told over the years that I cook well. I find that I do most things intuitively, ie, lowering the heat, covering the pan, the point at which I season, the combinations I use. I found myself saying ‘I do that’ all the while I read this book. What I found interesting were the explanations as why we do this or that. This is an excellent book for all cooks, novice or expert. A heartfelt thanks for sharing such valuable experience.”
