I love to cook, so this was a great book for me to read. I learned so much from this short book, it's amazing. 101 pages, each with a new fact. Definitions, how-to's, tips, and quotes fill the pages. Great book for anyone wanting to learn to cook, looking to polish their cooking skills, or just love to be in the kitchen.
