"Considering that I get 90% of my meal ideas from the Internet these days, traditional cookbooks have become more about the pictures for me. This is a chef's must-have tome that isn't a standard series of recipes — it outlines twenty techniques and skills every home chef should hone. As someone who has sent myself to the ER due to a kitchen accident, I imagine there would be a lot for me to learn."
