The Making of a Chef: Mastering Heat at the Culinary Institute of America by Michael Ruhlman
The Making of a Chef: Mastering Heat at the Culinary Institute of America

worldtravel04, June 18, 2007

Interesting people and a wonderfully detailed look at the educational process at the Culinary Institute. This is a book I have reread a couple of times.
