Keys to Good Cooking: A Guide to Making the Best of Foods and Recipes

Keys to Good Cooking: A Guide to Making the Best of Foods and

The answers to many kitchen conundrums in one easy-to-use volume, from the author of the acclaimed culinary bible On Food and Cooking. From our foremost expert on the science of cooking, Harold McGee, Keys to Good Cooking is a concise and authoritative guide designed to help home cooks navigate the ever-expanding universe of ingredients, recipes, food safety, and appliances, and arrive at the promised land of a satisfying dish. A work of astounding scholarship and originality, Keys to Good Cooking directly addresses the cook at work in the kitchen and in need of quick and reliable guidance. Cookbooks past and present frequently contradict one another about the best ways to prepare foods, and many contain erroneous information and advice. Keys to Good Cooking distills the modern scientific understanding of cooking and translates it into immediately useful information. Looking at ingredients from the mundane to the exotic, McGee takes you from market to table, teaching, for example, how to spot the most delectable asparagus (choose thick spears); how to best prepare the vegetable (peel, don't snap, the fibrous ends; broiling is one effective cooking method for asparagus and other flat-lying vegetables); and how to present it (coat with butter or oil after cooking to avoid a wrinkled surface). This book will be a requisite countertop resource for all home chefs, as McGee's insights on kitchen safety in particular-reboil refrigerated meat or fish stocks every few days. (They're so perishable that they can spoil even in the refrigerator.); Don't put ice cubes or frozen gel packs on a burn. (Extreme cold can cause additional skin damage)-will save even the most knowledgeable home chefs from culinary disaster. A companion volume to recipe books, a touchstone that helps cooks spot [read more]

Understanding Italian Pasta and Sauce - Making Pasta from Scratch and Cooking Classical Italian Pasta Dishes (a short recipe guide and unconventional cookbook)

Understanding Italian Pasta and Sauce - Making Pasta from Scratch and Cooking Classical Italian Pasta Dishes (a short recipe guide

When most people think of Italian cooking they think of pasta. Sitting down at an Italian restaurant to eat a big steaming bowl of pasta soaked in a rich marinara or cheese sauce has become a classic American comfort food.It’s very tempting to want to make the same pasta dishes at home. People who take that first step often start at the grocery store looking at a box of dried pasta and a jar of thin, over salted sauce. Following the recipe on the side of the jar usually falls short of expectations. At the same time, for the average American home cook the idea of making pasta and sauce from scratch can feel like a tall mountain to climb.These days the knee jerk reaction is to turn to the internet for help. Unfortunately, what you usually find with an internet search is an ingredient list and instructions that are an eloquent way of saying “Just dump everything together and stir.” To really honor a dish and understand the process you need to get your hands on it and build some authentic experience.In some of my other books I tell the story of how I grew up at the apron strings of my adopted Italian Grandma. She was born in Naples Italy and immigrated to America after World War Two where she ran an Italian Restaurant. She and her husband retired just a few weeks before I was born and agreed to take care of me while my Mother worked double shifts. I called them Grandma and Papa.I grew up eating classic Italian dishes as well as new American tweaks on the Italian food that was so popular in American restaurants through the 60’s 70’s and 80’s. After Grandma and Papa died I dedicated myself to learning how to recreate the classical Italian dishes of my childhood. Some people think of their childhood favorites and Grandma’s cooking as being chicken noodle soup and fresh bak [read more]
