The Culinary Institute of America (CIA) trains professionals. In “The Culinary Institute of America Cookbook” (Lebhar-Friedman Books) they present their 375 favorite recipes designed and tested for home cooks. In addition the book has dozens of tips, techniques and suggestions honed in the classroom for making the best of all possible situations, ingredients and challenges making it both a cookbook for cooking and a cookbook for reading and learning.
The stunning photographs, the pithy “Prior to Cooking” chapter, and Charts and Tables are worthy of both appreciation and study.
