Today’s giveaway is a truly incredible reference/cookbook that I am most happy to share. It was given to me by my lovely friend Liz the Chef. I have read it cover to cover, and I want to pass it along you to one of you. It’s Ruhlman’s Twenty: 20 Techniques, 100 Recipes, A Cook’s Manifesto
This is a must-have cookbook for anyone really serious about understanding cooking, seasoning, temperature, and technique. It is full of how-to photographs as well. Just fantastic. The only reason that I’m not keeping it (besides space) is that it’s more for traditional cooks… featuring meat, sugar, and gluten. I learned a ton reading it. Here’s what’s on my permanent cookbook shelf, in case you’re wondering.
