When Cal Peternell, chef at Chez Panisse, realized that his college-bound son had no idea how to cook (despite growing up eating great food) he came up with this introduction to the kitchen. More than a collection of recipes, it is also a cooking course—one that shows how learning basics, then building upon them, will give any cook confidence. There is so much good food and great instruction in this book—not to mention gorgeous photographs and illustrations—that we can see this becoming an absolute classic.
