I'm probably not as impressed as I'm supposed to be by this comprehensive list of things you can make yourself. (Pickles? check. Tomato sauce? check. Spice blends? check. Pie crust, are you kidding me?)

However, what I really liked about this cookbook was its focus on method over recipe. For example, a section on chocolates starts off by coating dried fruit in bittersweet chocolate, but also explains how that works and how else you can apply it.

Um. Did I mention chocolate coatings? That helped.

Overall, a good thinking cookbook that you can sit down and read.
