Wayne Gisslen's style of teaching cooking is one that is very well known and has been used for years. He makes sure the particular food is understood before any techniques are taught with the food, which allows a reader to have a complete understanding of cooking. This new edition includes videos on the CD in the back of the book that will help further illustrate the correct techniques in the kitchen. On top of that there are over 100 new recipes, some with particular emphasis on international cooking.
