Where has this book been all of my cooking life....I am no slouch in the kitchen but if I had known this existed my cooking would have been better for it. The book is easy to follow and has a good flow to the information, and I like that the "master recipe" is just the basic how to so you can them come up with your own versions.

It is a great resource book, and I'm really hoping this will be released in digital format but if not I still plan on picking this one up. A must have for every kitchen.

I love this book. I want to hug it and make it my new best friend. Alas, it is an E-arc, so that's hard to do.

I can't really say enough about it. Where was this book when I was trying to teach myself how to cook? I could have saved so much time that I spent googling random things from my cell phone. There are so many reference tables, charts, and conversions, even apart from the actual information and general text that I would want to keep this handy in the kitchen, because I know I'd be checkin

Perusing through this book shows me that it lives up to it's name. A cooking coach is exactly what it is. It has the in-depth details that many cookbooks assume you already know. It explains how ingredients are used, how cooking techniques operate and how to best used frozen foods.

If you are a beginner you will appreciate how detailed this book gets. I'm not a beginner and I'm seeing plenty of things that will change my kitchen techniques for the better. I can imagine giving this to a young pers
3-14-2014 – I have been informed that my epub copy is an early galley of the finished epub book due to publish in May/June 2014 for Nook. This should be kept in mind when reading my review as the final polished version will likely address the concerns expressed in my review with regard to links/sizing. However, I cannot comment further since I have not seen the final version.

Original review..
This is not a cookbook; that should be clear from the beginning. I received my copy of My Cooking Coach

If you dream of knowing how to cook like a chef, to be comfortable with different ingredients and techniques, this book is one you want on your shelf. Perhaps you just want to know how to set the table ? It's all there. I have been watching cooking shows, reading various cookbooks over the years and been amazed at the abilities of the chefs. This book makes me feel comfortable to prepare just about anything. The hows and whys of certain methods was eye opening. I plan on buying it for several of ...more
