Hello, all! Tonight I am publishing the introduction to a new cooking book that I have in the works. It is not so much a cook book as it is a guide for people who have not cooked much before, or who want to improve their skills. It will also have information that even experienced cooks will find interesting. I do not want it to be a very big book, because I really think that the essentials of cooking well are not that complicated.
Besides, there are lots of good recipe books available, and I want this to be a little different. It is intended to more like a operator’s manual for the kitchen.
The introduction will be essentially all of the extended text box except for my signoff. I would appreciate any suggestions for improvement in the comments, and hope that the purpose of the book is clear from the introduction. Without further ado, here we go. By the way, I have not given the work a name yet.
