If this took any time from that horrible patent troll operation of Myhrvold's [Intellectual Ventures] than I applaud this book. Amazing that Myhrvold was always held to be some sort of genius at Micro$oft, yet his major accomplishment upon leaving there was a patent troll firm, meant to shake down honorable people and intimidate others into halting all innovative work?!?! The devil take Myhrvold!

This is really good book for serious cooks. I don’t think the point of the book is to provide directions to dishes, but to expand into new ways of looking at and approaching your kitchen and ingredients. It’s a great reference book, with stunning art and masterful techniques. It combines delicious food, wonderful photography and the science behind great cooking.

Great kitchen companion manual. The book is all text and no pictures but nonetheless, wonderful!
