Where Cooking Begins: Uncomplicated Recipes to Make You a Great Cook

We rated this book:


Carla Lalli Music is a food magician. And the good news is she is willing to share her magic with everyone in this beautiful new book. This is not your run-of-the-mill cookbook. It is so much more. The first thirty-one pages cover ideas for such things as a new way to shop and how to pare down your equipment and spices. The next fifty-two pages are about techniques. What is the perfect method for steaming? What is confit and for which foods should you use it? How can anyone make perfect pastry dough? It isn’t until page eighty-three that she gets around to the recipes, but the wait is well worth it. This is where the real magic happens. Who would think of combining Buttery Beets and Grapefruit? After tasting that recipe, you will always think of it. Or how about thirty-minute Spatchcock Chicken and Vegetables? She shares some great tricks of the trade in this recipe. Nearly every spread in the book has gorgeous close-up photos of completed recipes that will inspire you to try your hand at new ways of preparing old favorites or daring to combine ingredients you might never have considered.
