Staff Reviews


Patricia Wells’s cookbooks are always packed with outstanding recipes, and her latest is no exception. But My Master Recipes is even more: it is a primer on how to cook. Wells, who runs cooking schools in France, showcases her skills, teaching essential techniques like steaming, searing, braising, and baking. Wells is warm and personable and her recipes and instructions are so well tested that this book could almost come with a money-back guarantee that it will make you a better, more confident cook. My Master Recipes has earned starred reviews from Library Journal and Publishers Weekly, who calls it “a superb tutorial.”

Description


Famed bestselling cookbook author Patricia Wells creates a blueprint for success in the kitchen with this superb collection of recipes drawn from her cooking schools in France--the perfect successor to Julia Child's classic The Way to Cook.

At her cooking schools in Paris and Provence, Patricia Wells's students leave with more confidence in the kitchen than they ever experienced before. Now, home cooks can learn from the master, known for her collections of delectable, precise, and well-tested, recipes.

Here Patricia Wells codifies the skills she imparts in her classes in this inviting instruction manual and cookbook. Each of the recipes teaches particular techniques--blanching, searing, simmering, sweating, steaming, braising, deep-frying--with additional recipes that take your skills in directions both savory and sweet, simple and profound--giving you the knowledge and assurance to expand your cooking even further.
