CookWise Cookbook

How To and Why Recipes Cookbook

gourmet recipes cookbookThe Cookwise Cookbook is a unique combination of basic cooking know-how, excellent recipes--from apple pie to beurre blanc--and reference source. The author makes the science of cooking entirely comprehensible, then livens it up with stories, such as when her first roast duck blew up because she overstuffed it and the fat from the bird caused it to expand beyond capacity.

If you want to know how to make the flakiest pastry, best-textured breads, delicious fruit desserts from fruit that's not fully ripe, impeccable sauces, and attractively bright cooked vegetables, this book contains the answers. In each of the cookbooks 230-plus recipes, Corriher applies her astounding food science to all aspects of the baker's art: biscuits, pies, cakes and breads. In addition, eggs, meats, and sauces receive her probing analyses of what goes awry in the kitchen and how to remedy it. Anecdotes leaven what might otherwise be dull, dry text. The Cookwise Cookbook is a must for any cooking reference collection.
