This is a VERY comprehensive beginning book for culinary arts. It explains knife skills, terminology, meat cuts, methods of cooking, and everything else the beginning culinary student or home cook needs to know! It is also CHOCK FULL of at least a hundred recipes that are delicious! A definite must have for the library of culinary wizards. The only bad this is that it is a VERY large and heavy book, so it was awkward carrying it to class.read more
