A very enlightening cookbook. It doesn't only tells you what to do in order to make a dish, but also explains why and the rationale behind certain steps. It's extremely useful for anyone who doesn't want to blindly follow procedures and is eager to create their own flavours.
The only disappointments are: (1) Measurements and terminologies are in US terms. (2) Some cookware & food brand recommendations are again limited to US.
Was tempted to give it a 4-star rating. But there's nothing similar published in the UK (What a shame!), leaving this book still the BEST BEST BEST ever cookbook you can find in the UK.
Highly recommended! Even it may be a bit of pain to look up conversion table & google, it's still the BEST cookbook.
