I do like an idiot's guide!
on 16 April 2015
This book tells me simple things which I knew already like warming a lemon in the microwave to help it yield more juice or chilling cheese to make it grate more easily but it tells me lots of things I didn't know like only cooking cranberries until they pop because after that they turn bitter. Many tips are very simple and would be known by any reasonably experienced cook but there are things which had passed me by and will be useful, keeping me to a rather straighter path. The book will undoubtedly be of help to the inexperienced cook but has a lot to help those who have spent more hours than they would care to remember in the kitchen.
