I don't usually "read" cookbooks. I love to look at the beautiful, unachievable pictures; I often look through the recipes and I sometimes try a few, but reading is not what I would say I was doing.

I read this cookbook. If you are going to use this book, you need to read through the introduction and the theories behind it. This cookbook is explaining why we do what we do when we cook. I hope to become more creative and confident in the kitchen with this book.

My husband as always said that recipes are "within the estimate of the egg" since eggs are not uniform. Ruhlman shows that there is even more latitude than the size of the egg.

I am looking forward to getting my own copy so that I can actually cook with this book. I don't want to mess up the library copy. And when I use it, I am planning on having some fun.
