I just got "Sauces" by James Peterson

post #1 of 3

Yes, this thread is completely useless to everyone but me, but I'm so happy, I had to post.

 

Mine is third edition (current edition) and the color of the text is a little off-putting, being a "rust" color, to match the cover and the dust jacket.

 

Other than that, I got a new toy and had to share.  Just reading the ToC, I'm all excited.  Now onto diving in head first.  G'day all.

Well, you won't have any trouble filling your spare time, Gobblygook. If you intend actually reading it, it will keep you busy for awhile.

 

We reviewed Sauces awhile back. If you're interested in seeing the review you can find it here: http://www.cheftalk.com/products/sauces-classical-and-contemporary-sauce-making

Come now... I got lucky with someone referring "On Food and Cooking".  I decided that I wanted my next book to be similar -- a text book of sorts.  BDL is to blame for me picking a book on sauces though because he keeps tossing out French terms and sauces and I hate being lost.  So, when I decided to buy another book, I almost posted and then this amazing thing happened.... I tried "search" and voila!  Once I found a book that several folks here seemed to agree on, then I searched for the title.  The reviews on Amazon were great because the low star reviews complained that it's not a cookbook and that it's too in-depth.   Those are the type of negative reviews I love.  I did my homework before selecting this extremely expensive (~$25) smile.gif book.  Now that it's arrived, I had to gloat.
