I rhink that for this type of project you need to research "old school" style.
Pre-kindle/e-books, stuff like Escoffier, or C.I.A. books start off in a very certain pattern:
First ingredients are discussed
Basic equipment is discussed
Next basic skills like knife handling, basic prep work are discussed
Next, basic cooking components like stocks, marinades, doughs, emulsions, etc are discussed
Then cooking methods are discussed
Only then are recipies...
