The first masterpiece from America's favorite food geek, this book changed my life as it helped me understand the chemistry and physics of what is happening inside food as it cooks. Again, part reference book and part recipe book, Brown explains the science behind cooking principles like brining or searing, and then recipes that perfect illustrate and execute these principles. And in true AB style, the chemistry and physics mumbo-jumbo is explained in a whimsical and simplified manner that anyone can understand.
