Now, the ninth edition features an all-new, user-friendly design that guides readers through each cooking technique, starting with a basic formula, outlining the method at-a-glance, offering expert tips, covering each method with beautiful step-by-step photography, and finishing with recipes that use the basic techniques.

    The new edition also offers a global perspective and includes essential information on nutrition, food and kitchen safety, equipment, and product identification. Basic recipe formulas illustrate fundamental techniques and guide chefs clearly through every step, from mise en place to finished dishes.

    • Includes an entirely new chapter on plated desserts and new coverage of topics that range from sous vide cooking to barbecuing to seasonality
    • Highlights quick reference pages for each major cooking technique or preparation, guiding you with at-a-glance information answering basic questions and giving new insights with expert tips

      The quality was excellent, superb service and prompt delivery

    • Many detailed color photos of food ingredients

      We bought this book for a young friend who wants to become a chef and own his own restaurant. He is delighted with the book. The book is well organized. The many photos resemble those in a Dorling Kindersley children's book: clear, close up and colorful. Many base recipes are included in dozens of categories. Herbs and spices are described by flavor. The book is over a thousand pages long and the binding will probably tear under the weight of the pages. The book is excellent for someone who wants a broad and detailed overview of food preparation.
