“This book is all meat with no fat. . . . Sure to surprise and enlighten even the most informed gourmands.”—Publishers Weekly (starred review), on the first edition of 101 Things I Learned in Culinary School

• 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.
