Drawing on the CIA's extensive expertise, it shares all the basic information on equipment, ingredients, and techniques needed to become a great cook, from proper knife skills to cooking methods such as braising, grilling, sautéing, and stewing. Readers learn the techniques step by step, with detailed instructions an extensive color photographs that clearly explain both what to do and how to do it.

Perfect for practicing skills and building a repertoire, the book's 200 stylish recipes are delicious and easy to make, from Beef Satay with Peanut Sauce to Roast Chicken with Pan Gravy, from Shrimp in Chili Sauce to Pasta Primavera with Basil Cream Sauce, French Style Peas, and more.

Review:

"The nation's most influential training school for professional cooks." Time

Review:

"This superbly organized, stripped-down offspring of the CIA's New Professional Chef has the no-nonsense tone that results when dozens of teachers collaborate on a serious project....this makes an ideal book for committed starting cooks, as well as culinary over-achievers who occasionally need reminding of the basics." Publishers Weekly

Review:

"While some of these are closer to comfort food than haute cuisine, the book ultimately emphasizes technique and more sophisticated recipes and will therefore appeal only to ambitious home cooks." Library Journal
