Things Cooks Love: Implements, Ingredients, Recipes and Knives Cooks Love: Selection. Care. Techniques. Recipes

Sur La Table and Marie Simmons; From Publishers Weekly; This globe-trotting collection from the Seattle-based cookware chain Sur la Table uses cooking equipment as its inspiration. Authored by Simmons; who writes for Food & Wine and Cooking Light; this book recognizes that having the most suitable tool is critical to fun and successful food preparation. In the opening chapters; Simmons outlines the basic items a home cook should stock; like a peeler and whisk; before moving on to more sophisticated tools; e.g.; a karahi (an Indian wok) and mattone (an Italian terra cotta press). From there; the book is organized by implement: a recipe for a chef’s torch; for example; is Roasted Asparagus and Tomatoes with Bubbling Mozzarella; a pommes anna pan produces; well; Pommes Anna with Herbs and Mushrooms. The recipes appeal to a new cook with their precision; so homemade crepes or fresh sushi will seem accessible; especially with the most suitable tool at hand.
