Editors Note Anyone can follow a recipe, but it is the ability to improvise that sets a great home cook apart. Cooking Know-How is the ultimate guide to cooking basics, because unlike most other cookbooks, this useful guide is much more than just a list of recipes. It is a step-by-step manual, packed with photos, that will guide readers towards a true understanding of basic kitchen techniques. The book's unique format mimics a cooking class experience, with 65 "master recipes," each accompanied by examples and suggestions for improvisation. So based on a simple master recipe for Bean Soup, for example, the reader can go on to create Southern Black-Eyed Pea Soup, Minestrone, and countless other related dishes (over 500 included). The master recipes are explained in great detail, and each is accompanied by full-color, step-by-step photos -- 325 in all -- that illustrate key culinary techniques. From absolute beginners to accomplished home cooks and aspiring professionals, everyone can gain something from this thoughtful, step-by-step approach. And with the expertise of two highly experienced food professionals shining through in every recipe, Cooking Know-How is the ideal resource to teach readers of any level how to cook with confidence.
