Books that make you a better cook
Coddle! Fricassee! Macerate! Sorry. I just had to get that out of my system. I'd like to publicly thank everyone who took the time to give me a reality check the other day. Having read a few too many "how to write about food" articles, I researched myself into a corner. But you pulled me out, dusted me off and gave me a reassuring pat on the back. Thanks. I've been thinking a lot about what you've said and now feel confident that if I toss out a forbidden term you will either understand it, figure things out from the context or turn to Google. It also seems that you are a curious bunch who like to expand your gadgets collection as well as your culinary knowledge. So, here are four books I turn to often in my quest to develop new recipes or at least not cause any more kitchen disasters in the process. While they cover similar territory, each does so in a different way. I'm betting between the four, there's one (or more) that will suit.
