Cookwise by Shirley Corriher
Shirley is a true charmer. Rarely does a chemist also manage to be an engaging presence in the home kitchen, but Shirley does this with grace. In contrast to many recipes by modern, "scientific" chefs, Shirley Corriher still crafts recipes that home cooks can use but that are rooted in scientific theory. In essence, Shirley takes the guesswork out of cooking and gives you recipes that will work every time. Homey, delicious, and fine-tuned, her recipes are interspersed with information--how to make cookies crisp or chewy, the smoke points of different oils, how to make a perfect sauce, and much more. We think you'll love Shirley as much as we do.
