Cooking for Geeks by Jeff Potter
Are you the innovative type, the cook who marches to a different drummer — used to expressing your creativity instead of just following recipes? Are you interested in the science behind what happens to food while it’s cooking? Do you want to learn what makes a recipe work so you can improvise and create your own unique dish?
Cooking for Geeks is an excellent and intriguing resource for anyone who wants to experiment with cooking, even if you don’t consider yourself a geek.
