Any culinary question is now easily answered in "On Food and Cooking." It's virtually the 'tell me why' for adults in the kitchen. Daniel Boulud, chef-owner of Daniel and Cafe BouludI don't think that Harold McGee missed a single detail in this absolutely fascinating anthology of the hows, whys, and wherefores of cooking. This book is a treasure trove of useful facts and unusual information and a must for every cook who possesses an inquiring mind. Cheryl Mendelson, author of "Home Comforts: The Art and Science of Keeping House""On Food and Cooking" is the classic that weaves together history, science, and practical advice in mesmerizing (really) discussion of every conceivable topic of interest in the kitchen...Everyone who eats can use this book. It belongs in every home. Susan Feniger and Mary Sue Milliken, chefs-owners Border Grills and Ciudad Restaurant We've been referring to Harold McGee's treasure, "On Food and Cooking," since we were prep cooks decades ago and it's recommended reading for anyone who comes to work in our kitchens. We're thrilled to have this update packed with even more 'aha' moments. Mario Batali, chef-owner of Babbo and OttoMcGee's immeasurable knowledge and infinite wisdom has hugely influenced the state of gastronomy. I constantly refer to "On Food and Cooking" and I am thrilled there's more yet to learn from the master of food and science. This book covers topics I have never ever heard of in a comprehensive end all way. Jacques Pepin, author of "Jacques and Julia Cooking at Home" and "The Apprentice: My Life in the Kitchen"I have used Harold McGee's "On Food and Cooking" for the last two decades whenever I've had questions on the chemistry of food or to understand some aspect of the cooking process. This extraordinary, new, expanded edition will occupy a place of prominence on my bookshelf. Rose Levy Beranbaum, author of "The Pie and Pastry Bible"In his past two tomes Hal McGee's profound scientific knowledge, fueled by intensely focused curiosity, gave us the tools to create new recipes. In this masterful revision he has gone beyond the specifics of how ingredients work to the very nature of the ingredient itself, inspiring us to still greater culinary heights. McGee is indeed our philosopher king of cooking. Shirley O. Corriherauthor of "CookWise"Harold McGee changed our lives with his original "On Food and Cooking." While we knew that many things in cooking worked or didn't work, McGee showed us why.
