My Thoughts

I just love to cook. For as long as I can remember, I always loved to cook. It started with making omelets and now I can proudly say that I can cook Indian, Chinese, continental, and many more.

When I first came across this book, I knew I have to read it. However, I was not sure what to expect from the book. Me or any other home cooks, we cook from YouTube videos and or recipe book. However, I have never been to and culinary school, and basic knowledge is always lacking.

This book talks about the basis, all four types of sauces, syrup, spread, etc. It discusses basic gardening for day to day vegetables and fruit (I am an amateur gardener).

This is a perfect book for anyone who wants to learn basic concepts of cooking and simple recipes.

The only thing I felt is the book should have included some pictures. If there were pictures with every chapter, recipe, the book would have been much better.
