Publishers Text

An informative, illustrated guide to food, cooking, and the culinary profession by a former White House chef.

"This book is all meat with no fat....sure to surprise and enlighten even the most informed gourmands." --Publishers Weekly (starred review of the First Edition of 101 Things I Learned in Culinary School)

A chef must master countless techniques, memorize a mountain of information, and maintain a zenmaster's calm. This book illuminates the path to becoming a culinary professional by sharing important kitchen fundamentals and indispensable advice, such as:
  *  Practical how-to's, from properly holding a knife to calibrating a thermometer to creating a compost pile
  *  Ways to emphasize, accent, deepen, and counterpoint flavors
  *  Why we prefer a crisp outside and tender inside in most foods
  *  Understanding wine labels and beer basics
  *  How to narrow innumerable culinary options to a manageable few, whether selecting knives, oils, thickeners, flours, potatoes, rice, or salad greens
  *  How a professional kitchen is organized and managed to maintain its mission
Written by a culinary professor and former White House chef, 101 Things I Learned in Culinary School is a concise, highly readable resource for culinary students, home chefs, casual foodies, and anyone else trying to find their way around--or simply into--the kitchen.
