Invaluable primers throughout offer simple explanations of age-old techniques and food science facts, such as how to get the perfect creamy pasta sauce, how to make leftover veggie soup without a recipe, why you need brown butter in your life (and in your cookies!), and why a little sweetness is the secret to the best roast chicken. With this must-have kitchen companion, everyone can learn the basics of cooking simple but delicious food, whether it’s your first cookbook or it’s joining a full shelf of dog-eared and sauce-stained classics.
