McGee on Food and Cooking: An Encyclopedia of Kitc&hellip by Harold Mcgee

I have recently received and already love this book.

Buyers should be aware that the title is accurate ("Encyclopedia"). If you aren't the sort of person who would want to dip into an exhaustive reference book; if you want recipes rather than facts; if you can't lift 2kg - then this book isn't for you.

I've just been diving into the book at random so far. But it has already made me rethink where I keep my eggs in the fridge and how I freeze my meat.

They key thing for me is the book is well written. There is plenty of science here, but it is never dry. If you're not in the mood for the deep science then I think it is easy to skim through to the practical… Read more

Mountmap Three Valleys (Les Trois Vallees) Winter &hellip
5.0 out of 5 stars Would recommend, 9 Jan 2008
I bought one of these before my first trip to the 3-valleys. Really useful for all the reasons you would expect. Easier to find where you are, where you want to go etc. Much tougher than a paper map, but you would expect at least that given the extra cost.

If you've been to the resort before, then I don't really think this will be that useful, but for first-timers it made navigation much less of a drag.
