Another example of a cookbook whose author/editor (if any)/publisher have not bothered to look at the e-book version. Recipes start in the middle of a page. Worst of all, there is no index, not even a table of contents. This in effect makes the book unusable.

Turning a bunch of newspaper columns into a book is not new...Dave Barry did it to great success.

There is a tremendous amount of good information in this book. But there is NEITHER a Table of Contents, NOR an Index!

It is difficult enough to navigate a well thought out Kindle edition. But with neither of those, and no links, this one is impossible. I'm still giving it a second star because of the good info and pictures.

I'm an older female adult, and have cooked for quite a long time, but I picked up some hints and couldn't believe how thorough this book is. It is truly amazing, and would be wonderful for someone just developing their cooking skills - you will not be disappointed, though regardless your level.

I just purchased the Kindle version of this book. I would agree with all of the other reviewers about the content of the book. HOWEVER, there is No Index and Kindles do not have pages, so you are forced to scroll and to guess ... I still can't find the French Onion Soup Recipe and Technique which I read about and which enticed me to purchase the book.

Talk about a great explanatory book on cooking! It gets down to the nuts and bolts of why I do a lot of the things I do...as well as gives great ideas on how to do things more efficiently and how to make things a lot tastier with simple techniques. Love it!

This is such a great resource for cooks!! From bare beginners to confident cooks, all can glean from this reference book for cooks. From chopping onions, to cleaning mussels, corning beef, poaching an egg, making homemade ricotta cheese (something I LOVE to do, but I know many cooks who didn't even realize you could easily make your own at home), carving a turkey or cooking in parchment paper, this book covers it all. It's not just a "how-to" book, but after teaching you the technique then gives you at least one recipe to use that technique. While most cooks can glean something from this book, I especially recommend it to beginner cooks. There is so much they can learn out of this book. I highly recommend it!

I received a copy of this book from Agate Publishing for my honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

By the way, this review is for the hard copy of the book, not the Kindle version.

Anyone who ever worked in a restaurant will tell you that 'prep' is the key to turning out fine meals in volume and any chef will tell you the same for individual dishes and meals. This book tells you how to get ready to be a Ninja Chef and outclass those neighbors who still use the haphazard home method of doling out the ingredients while cooking the meal. It's full of tricks and tips for the beginner to the pro. I highly recommend this as an essential volume in any serious cook's cookbook collection. It's as basic a kitchen tool as a mortar and pestle or a knife.

I have browsed the content and it is pretty good and useful especially for beginner home cooks. However the organisation is pretty bad, no indexes, no links. Hard to navigate.
