Hi.

I'm looking for a book I read about in a magazine once. Instead of listing recipes, it contains information on the relative amounts of different types of ingredients you need to make a type of dish, like this type of sauce requires 1/3 fat, 1/3 water, 1/6 flour and 1/6 spice etc, only more advanced than that. I am pretty sure it was written in english by an american man, but I don't remember anything else. Does anyone know what I am looking for?

Best wishes.

Hello again, been looking on Amazon. Check out a guy called Michael Ruhlman. Ratio: The Simple Codes Behind the Craft of Everyday Cooking. He is American and the book is written for the us Market so you will need to translate some of the ingredients and measurements, but all is possible in cooking. Hope this helps you.

Too late Olga, winner takes all, and I'm off to Iceland! :o>

Sorry, M Wiik, we are all getting completely carried away with the heatwave across the UK!
Proving beyond any doubt that - 'Mad dogs and Englishmen go out in the midday sun' !

I think our Carole could be right - this book certainly does sound exactly like the cookbook that you have described. Despite all the daftness, I hope we have helped!!!
