I’m going to go out on a limb and say that the title to this newly released cookbook may be more than a little misleading. The word cheating is a bit over the top. Handy kitchen tips and tricks may be more accurate. That’s not to say that it doesn’t contain some very useful cooking info. Reader’s Digest has put together a nice collection of over five hundred recipes that any home chef can tackle with relative ease.
You’re not going to find Eric Ripert’s secret for his perfectly crisped fish or the missing piece to the puzzle of Thomas Keller’s Oysters and Pearls, but, there are some tricks that will turn a perfectly unspectacular dish into something a little more special.
This cookbook may not turn your home kitchen into Chez Panisse, but, it has some great, practical techniques for you to use everyday.
