Now in a revised and expanded Second Edition, this work remains the most thorough guide available to basic cooking skills. Included within its pages you'll find tips, techniques and trade secrets that will make cooking and entertainment at home easier, more efficient, more creative and more fun. Incorporating over 900 recipes--including 115 new recipes--it has numerous other features including: a new chapter devoted to hors d'oeuvres, new international and ethnic recipes, updated information on nutrition, and expanded coverage of the latest in cooking equipment. There are also tips on using microwaves, techniques for dividing and multiplying recipe yields, more salad recipes and explanations for use of baker's percentages. Since it was originally written for professionals, there are behind-the-scenes insights that cannot be found in ordinary cookbooks. Contains the techniques the pros use to select, prepare and store raw ingredients; how they cook economically and avoid waste; and how they present food attractively.
