Publisher Comments:

Food Network and Cooking Channel star Aida Mollenkamp lays an invaluable foundation for cooks in How to Be in the Kitchen. This comprehensive manual collects more than 300 innovative, contemporary recipes as well as color photographs, plenty of informative illustrations, a substantial technique primer, and helpful how-to information on subjects as wide-ranging as rust removal, throwing a cocktail party, and knife skills. For members of the tech-savvy new generation who can't cook but want to, this essential reference guide makes an ideal starting place and for those already at ease in the kitchen it's full of "who knew" moments for expanding their repertoire of great recipes.

Synopsis:

Itandrsquo;s not always easy to try out a new recipeandmdash;especially when the risk of failure brings with it the risk of a hungry night at home. But sticking to what you know and love can get pretty boring after a while. So whatandrsquo;s a lazy, cash-strapped chef to do? Well, with the help of this book, you just grab a few kitchen staples, head to your cabinet, and get to work!

Synopsis:

For most people, the pantry is a last resort. Itand#39;s where we go when thereand#39;s nothing else to eat andmdash; but Hack Your Cupboard shows how even the cereal shelf has hidden treasures if youand#39;ve got the right attitude. In the end, a well-stocked pantry is the home cookand#39;s greatest asset andmdash; and in the meantime, even the most impoverished pantry can revive a boring meal. With hints on storage necessities and real-life andquot;cupboard challenges,andquot; this beautifully illustrated book will be one to take with you as you move on to ever-larger cupboards and more ambitious meals.
