I am a cookbook collector, it brings me joy to read stories about an author's history, and what ingredients inspire them to cook, gives me inspiration to cook. Great pictures on culinary techniques are so helpful when I'm prepping a new recipe and they make me feel more confident learning a new method. Amazon.com has a really wonderful Kindle cookbook and I thought I must share it with you. The book is Ruhlman's Twenty by Michael Ruhlman. In this book he covers twenty fundamental techniques, the nuances of how they work and then he follows up with recipes that allow you to use your new knowledge in the kitchen. A gifted translator of cooking and the science of cooking Ruhlman's Twenty is a must have for the novice and seasoned cook.
While most of my cookbooks are hardcopy and I do have this one in hardcover, I just couldn't resist having it in an ebook format so I can read it just about anywhere.
