Although I have a host of cookery books and I am always on the look out for books which provide theory and techniques. I was a bit sceptical at first about buying it because it was American but when I received it I was most impressed. The paper is good quality and print used is extremely clear and and easy on the eye. The book is well written throughout and is easy to understand. Measurements are in Imperial and Metric. The photography is all in colour and presented well. This is a book for the up and coming chef - it provides information on becoming a chef, nutrition, food and kitchen safety, equipment, how to saute and braise food etc. and a host of receipes supporting the techniques used. What I like is they have used the space on the page well without it looking cluttered. This would be a fabulous gift for anyone who was entering into the catering business and needed a good reference book.

This is the bible for anyone with a bit of ambition in the kitchen. A great guide that shows you the hows and whys of cooking, not just the receipes. It's filled to the brim with both the basics, the handy tips and the advanced techniques you'll need to become a gourmet cook.

It was a gift for my boyfriend. He is an experienced chef who is proud and enjoyis his job and he was so happy when he got it.
And even after few months, I can still see the joy on his face when he's going trough this book, looking for something specific.
So in my opinion, you can't be wrong with this one, especially as a gift for a chef.

A must not only for chefs, but for everboydy who loves to cook.
It is so detailed, that probably what is not in here regarding cooking does not exist.

I bought this for my son who would like to be a chef. I flicked through the book and the attention to detail and the quality of production are superb. Expensive but really worth if you, or someone you know, want to get serious..
