200 Skills Every Cook Must Have by Clara Paul

Clear rating
Easily accessible book covering general cooking skills. I very much like the presentation. Each skill is covered on its own page, with photographs of the method.

Kate Jacobs
“Cat, I'll let you in on a little secret. We don't all love our jobs every day. And doing something you have passion for doesn't make the work part of it any easier...It just makes you less likely to quit." ~ Georgia "The Friday Night Knitting Club”
Kate Jacobs, The Friday Night Knitting Club

Nuala O'Faolain
“The wait is long, my dream of you does not end.”
Nuala O'Faolain, My Dream of You

Jennifer Worth
“Now and then in life, love catches you unawares, illuminating the dark corners of your mind, and filling them with radiance. Once in awhile you are faced with a beauty and a joy that takes your soul, all unprepared, by assault.”
Jennifer Worth, Call The Midwife: A Memoir of Birth, Joy, and Hard Times

Nancy Pearl
“If you're 50 years old or younger, give every book about 50 pages before you decide to commit yourself to reading it, or give it up.

If you're over 50, which is when time gets shorter, subtract your age from 100 - the result is the number of pages you should read before deciding whether or not to quit. If you're 100 or over you get to judge the book by its cover, despite the dangers in doing so.”
Nancy Pearl

Jincy Willett
“Nothing was truly unbearable if you had something to read.”
Jincy Willett, The Writing Class
