Founded in 1975, Leiths School of Food and Wine has trained many professional and amateur cooks and is now recognised as a centre of culinary excellence mixing classical tradition with fresh innovation. This is the ultimate reference guide to culinary techniques. Rivalling the indomitable Le Cordon Bleu, it offers advice on every facet of the chef's world: menu planning and quantity calculation, using specific ingredients such as chocolate, caramel and custard, how to prepare and carve meat and what knife to use, pastry making and much, much more. In clear, concise prose it imparts the years of knowledge and expertise of the two authors, both Leiths educated, who in Leiths tradition are keen to encourage a genuine enthusiasm for the subject. Including recipes and advice on why things can go wrong and how to correct them, this would be a gem of a gift for a serious cook keen to learn more on the subject. - Lucy WatsonReseña del editor:
