An amazing piece of work, probably the first prep/cookbook produced with step-by-step illustrations. This, and it's later, companion volume, La Methode is a must for every cook and chefs library.

Recommends it for: microwave chefs and wustoff warriors
all the basics are neatly outlined and illustrated. prepare proper pastry and fillet a fish with style. this should join the kitchen library of anyone with a knife and hunger for more than out-the-box eats.
Cooking is hard work. It takes years of practice to learn all the techniques involved. This is an invaluable reference.
If you like to eat, please read this book. Prepare to pleasure yourself and those you love.
