More About Cookwise by Shirley O. Corriher
 
 
 
Overview
From the lightest biscuit to the flakiest pie crust, when you know exactly how and why things turn out the way they do in a recipe, you know how to duplicate the taste and texture you're looking for, every time. You also know how to create perfect recipes and troubleshoot bad ones. In CookWise, Shirley Corriher, the Sherlock Holmes of cooking, reveals the astonishing drama set in motion every time a potato hits hot fat to become a french fry, or the oven's heat bakes the outside of a chicken into a caramel crust.

In CookWise, over 230 delicious tried-and-true recipes show cooks not only how to make spicy Szechwan Chicken Salad, but why the oil is heated first with ginger, scallions, and pepper to extract flavor and then cooled before adding garlic and hoisin sauce, and precisely how three vastly different chocolate chip cookies can be made from the same recipe. With at-a-glance charts, eight pages of color photographs and black-and-white illustrations throughout.
