Containing historical and literary anecdotes, it covers all the major food categories, from meat and potatoes to sauce bernaise and champagne. Simple scientific explanations throw light on such mysteries as how to tell stale eggs from fresh, whether searing really seals in flavour and what happens when a cook kneads dough. A chapter on nutrition exposes the fallacies behind food fads, past and present. There is also a section on additives and one on the sensations of taste and smell.Hide synopsis

This is a wonderful book but it took weeks to arrive and, when it did, the base of the spine was broken. It won't survive much more than one read which is a pity as it is a very valuable reference book which I would have returned to many times. I'll be forced to search out another copy. I suspect this ...
I have the first edition which I bought new when it came out and just love it. I looked for copies for my son and for my friend. They love to cook and are curious about the 'how' and 'why' of it. I found the hard cover on Alibris for half the amount my other favorite local retailer was selling it.
This is one of those books that cooks, not matter how experienced, really need to have on the shelf.
The science of cooking is something many of us are just not taught in school or by our cooking teachers (parents included!) and someone like Mr McGee makes it easy to learn the basics that will transform ...
