Amazon just delivered Alton Brown’s I’m Just Here For The Food. I’ve only read the introduction and some of the first chapter – WOW! This is going to be really good reading.
His purpose is to explain why certain ingredients and cooking techniques do what they do. It is not a cookbook – it’s a science book, albeit a highly simplified one for the masses. The inner geek in me is jumping up and down alongside the inner cook.
I can’t wait to pass along some of the things I’m going to learn. Woot!
