Ruhlman's Twenty



Today's book is a book about cooking which also includes some recipes – many of which have pictorial illustrations of the techniques.  The book is called Ruhlman's Twenty.  The author, Michael Ruhlman has written a number of books.  He also co-authored some famous cookbooks such as The French Laundry Cookbook.  He has been a judge on Iron Chef America.
The book is divided into 20 chapters – hence the title – which he calls the basic techniques of cooking – and most of them have some recipes that utilise the technique.  I found most chapters not only interesting but the source of little tips to improve your cooking that I wouldn't have thought of.
The chapters include: 

Salt
Water
Onion
Acid
Egg
Butter
Saute
Roast
Braise
Poach
Grill
Fry
Chill
I recommend this book – not to buy – but to get from the library.
