"Good cooking is based on a solid foundation," posits the Food Network's Aida Mollenkamp. "You wouldn't drive a car without the keys, so you shouldn't cook without first having the keys to the kitchen," A primer on how to set up your kitchen how to stock your fridge, and how to rethink everything you know about food, Mollenkamp's manual collects more than 300 innovative, contemporary recipes like Red Curry Roast with Coconut-Chile Carrots, Indian-Style Braised Butter Chicken, Real-deal Pancetta and Pork Ragł, and Summer Vegetable-Farro Salad. The dozens of color photographs are complemented by plenty of informative illustrations, a substantial technique primer, and helpful how-to information on such subjects as rust removal, throwing a cocktail party, and knife skills.
