    " Having checked it out from the library, I read it through over the course of a couple of weeks and have since forgotten many of the explanations for why we cook the way we do and with certain ingredients. Would be a great book to have handy on the kitchen shelf. "

    " Definitely read if uyou love Alton Brown. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Barbara Kennedy | 1/26/2014

    " Wonderfully fascinating! Answers a multitude of questions who have probably wondered about and then just accepted -- along with some you should not have! "

    " I am thoroughly enjoying this gustatory education. I've always loved cooking and now I love knowing how the things I put together interact to become food. I missed Wolke's column in The Washington Post, so this fills the niche nicely. A good pick-up-put-down and reference book. "
