How to Read a French Fry & Other Stories of Intriguing Kitch Science by Russ Parsons

Book
$5.00 $19.00

In a book widely hailed for its entertaining prose and provocative research, the award-winning Los Angeles Times food journalist Russ Parsons examines the science behind ordinary cooking processes. Along the way he dispenses hundreds of tips and the reasons behind them, from why you should always begin cooking beans in cold water, to why you should salt meat before sauteing it, to why it's a waste of time to cook a Vidalia onion. Filled with sharp-witted observation (frying has become synonymous with minimum-wage labor, yet hardly anyone will try it at home), intriguing food trivia (fruit deprived of water just before harvest has superior flavor) and recipes (from Oven-Steamed Salmon with Cucumber Salad to Ultimate Strawberry Shortcake), How to Read a French Fry contains all the ingredients you need to become a better cook.
