Ratio: The Simple Codes behind the Craft of Everyday Cooking by Michael Ruhlman
Ratio: The Simple Codes behind the Craft of Everyday Cooking

rnk, October 15, 2010

I feel compelled to add this book to my essential kitchen recipe books (or post the cover on my refrigerator) because I love the information and the simple secrets revealed. However, I also want to re-organize the layout into something more workable! Not typically a fan of the "... for Dummies" series, I think this book could have a much more user friendly way to present these wonderful secrets so that a reader can more easily commit them to memory (without using the recipe which is the whole idea!). Other than the cover and the chapter ratios the authors great insights into batters and roux and other kitchen gems are buried in repetition. I think my copy will be cut and pasted with highlights and arty touches, transformed into a collage and used to decorate my kitchen.
