nice booklet 8 May 2010
By mikemac9 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
If this was published as a 15-page pamphlet I would give it 5 stars. However its not worth the $10.20 Amazon is selling it for. While nominally 200 pages, 1/2 the facing pages just have a simple illustration on them. On the pages that DO have printing, its usually just a paragraph or list of items centered on a page. And the pages are about the size of a large postcard. So while this book *does* have useful info and tips in it, I think of it more as a pamphlet in book form rather than a real book. Picked up for $2-5 it might be worth it, but I think its overpriced at $10.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I bought one for myself & one for my stepson (age 16) who desires to go to culinary school. I am not a chef, but I am very fluent and creative in the kitchen. This book is great for picking up tips and tricks, & PERFECT for beginners!

Something for everyone 12 Feb. 2013
By Daniel Estes - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This entry of the 101 Things series is for the cook, from novice to expert, and is applicable whether you're at home or work in the food service industry.

A few of my favorite entries include, "Five Knives do 95 percent of the work," "Fresh fish smells like the water it came from, old fish smells like fish," "Boil, shock, drain (pertaining to cooking vegetables)," and "Don't hesitate to recommend a beer pairing (i.e. pairing isn't just for wines)."

I purchased this book for a beginning cooking class I am taking. It was very helpful and showed me a lot of the basics. I would recommend it to anyone interested in the basics of cooking. Easy to read and understand.
