Never boiled an egg before but want to learn the magic art of cooking? Then don't leave home without this Survival Cookbook.
This Book by Prasenjeet Kumar, recounts, with wit and humour, the author's own semi-autobiographical experiences of participating in a "finding me a meal ritual…….(and) bumbling about in the wonderlands of cooking" in London, where he was pursuing for four years an LLB (Honours) degree as well as Legal Practice Course (LPC) Diploma.
Where this book scores over other "How To" cookbooks is in the manner in which it treats no question as "too stupid". Its next USP is its very logical and structured approach in which it follows a step by step "graduation" process.
You start with some very basic cooking techniques such as how to break, poach, fry, boil (and peel, yes that too is a skill) an egg, learn how to handle chicken, vegetables and fish and then "graduate" to making such "complicated" recipes as cheese omelette, vegetables au gratin, baked chicken or French Onion Soup.
The progression taught is logical and almost common sense. For example, once you boil an egg, you are taught how to make an egg sandwich and then graduate to making a grilled egg sandwich. Similarly, you are first taught how to boil a chicken, and then use the stock to make a chicken sweet corn soup and use the boiled chicken for making KFC-style breaded chicken.
Most uniquely, the book teaches the concept of "sequencing and parallel processing" to enable busy people to create a 3-4 course meal in less than 30 minutes.
The book is fun and entertaining to read. The photographs used in the book are all taken by the author himself, in natural light, without using any inedible garnish or props, and of the dishes that were made right in his kitchen. These are just meant to illustrate how exactly the dish would look like if you prepared them yourself, the author assures.
So be it healthy college cooking, or cooking for a single person or even outdoor cooking---this book promises to help you survive all situations by teaching you how to cook literally in a jiffy.
The author doesn't think Amazon would let him offer such a generous GIFT again, any time soon. So grab the offer with both your hands.
Remember the countdown deal expires on 21 May 2014 (US Pacific Standard Time).
In return, the author has just a request to make, which in his own words is: "if you do download and read this book, would you please give me some feedback and leave a review on Amazon, if you are happy?"
