There is a section about needed equipment basics and stocking the pantry. There is help in how to choose wine with different meals and food.
This is not a basic cookbook, but not all that difficult, even a determined beginning cook could complete these recipes; like egg in purgatory. My 10 year old wanna be - master chef- grandson even made the stuffed buttermilk pancakes on an aebleskiver pan (with a little help).
There are tales from the show, like when Gordon Ramsey had the contestants chop onions for 90 minutes. Directions and pictures are given for many techniques, such as cubing a mango or blanching. Each recipe has the ideas behind it from the individual. Included are very good directions; if a recipe says to roast peppers, they tell you how to do it.
Recipes (most have pictures)included are: breakfast, soups, salads and starters, pasta, poultry, seafood, meat, dessert and basics such as chicken broth, cooking rice and mayonnaise.
It is a deceptive cookbook, in that many might think it has very complicated recipes, but even that cook starting out or a more experienced cookbook collector would find this book useful.
This is the first review I have ever written. And I just feel compelled to because this book is just that good.
Some of the ethnic recipes require some spices that you can find in your regular grocery store, if not, then they will be available in the upper scale ones. I had no problems finding any of the ingredients for anything I've made so far, and I've made quite a few since I've had the book! My family gets excited when they see I have the book out and am making something from it. Next up is the chocolate hazelnut pistachio cupcakes! After that I'm making Whitney's winning dessert. Gotta go, oh, and definitely get the book!
