I received this book courtesy of Mr. Stuckert for a fair and honest review.
Overview: Mr. Stuckert believes we should cook for ourselves. And he has one technique that anyone can learn and use.
Story Telling: There weren’t any real inconsistencies in this book. (Grammar inconsistencies anyway.) And the recipes were written with the beginner in mind.
Likes: I like the fact the book is trying to get people to enjoy the art of cooking. It’s a great way to feel like you’ve accomplished something.
Dislikes: This book leaves many recipes unattainable, if the reader thinks that this book is all that they need. There is more to cooking than one technique. Oh. Cooking your own food won’t be making you skinny. I don’t like how there was such an emphasis on the website here. It made the book seem more like a commercial and not a serious cookbook.
Favorite Scene (Recipe in this case): I’m a girl. It’s the chocolate mousse.
Conclusion: Mr. Stuckert is giving people a start in cooking. It’s up to the reader to expand their knowledge. It’s good for the beginner, and then only if the beginner doesn’t want to get bored will they learn more. Or they will find more advanced cooking books.
