5.0 out of 5 stars
one of the best cookbooks you'll ever own, 20 April 2011
full of traditional american recipes, this one is not to miss. If you want to know why this recipe is the best recipe, you can read about how this perfect recipe came about. The scientific approach (which you can also skip reading) provides you with non-failure recipes. It also provides tutorials in technical skills, which brands gave the best results (sadly only american brands, but still) and hall of shames :)
The illustrations are clear and the descriptions very accurate. On top of that it's very well designed and illustrated, very pleasing to the eye. This one a keeper and will pass on to future generations!
