This is a textbook prepared by the Culinary Institute of America for use by professional cooks. I appreciated its straightforwardness and depth of research. It is by far the best resource I have found on the subject so far. Inconveniently for me, however, most of the recipes included were written to make 8+ servings, and all of the ingredients are measured by weight, not volume.

I use this as a supplement for teaching my culinary arts nutrition class. It has a bit of a textbook feel but it is great - it offers recipe modifications and recipes with a little bit of sound nutrition information. It inspires me. There is a newer edition available.
