If this took any time from that horrible patent troll operation of Myhrvold's [Intellectual Ventures] than I applaud this book. Amazing that Myhrvold was always held to be some sort of genius at Micro$oft, yet his major accomplishment upon leaving there was a patent troll firm, meant to shake down honorable people and intimidate others into halting all innovative work?!?! The devil take Myhrvold!

Absolutely awesome book!
Lots of detail, well thought out, plenty on technique, with tested recipes, (all be it some require interesting equipment and ingredients,..but hey, that's what your reading the book to find out about,) and gorgeous photos all throughout, (...don't know what book sdelao was reviewing below, but it sure wasn't this one!)
I tried several recipes, and every one was a winner.
My only regret is I have to bring the book back to the library, ( seriously has me thinking "expenses be damned, I'm buying this book!")
I can see this as the sort of book you return to over and over again for years!

This is really good book for serious cooks. I don’t think the point of the book is to provide directions to dishes, but to expand into new ways of looking at and approaching your kitchen and ingredients. It’s a great reference book, with stunning art and masterful techniques. It combines delicious food, wonderful photography and the science behind great cooking.

Great kitchen companion manual. The book is all text and no pictures but nonetheless, wonderful!
