Way too technical for the average cook!,
By A Customer
This review is from: On Food and Cooking: The Science and Lore of the Kitchen (Paperback)
This book is much more about science than cooking. The content is much more technical than most readers will desire (as with, the discussion of the molecular structure of milk in its various states).

The word "science" is in the book's sub-title! To give it one-star for it's content is extremely harsh. How does the reviewer know what we desire?

The reviewer is just wrong. A book about the science of cooking which is technical is EXACTLY what most readers of books about the science of cooking will desire. The discussion of the molecular structure of milk in its various states is EXACTLY what such readers will require. It's possible to infer that the reviewer is just one of the average cooks to which (s)he refers.
