    From the 7-time James Beard Award-winning teacher, an invaluable reference handbook—from picking ripe produce to cooking a perfectly tender lobster. 
     
    Culinary students everywhere rely on the comprehensive and authoritative cookbooks published by chef, instructor, and award-winning author Jim Peterson. And now, for the first time, this guru-to-the-professionals turns his prodigious knowledge into a practical, chockablock, quick-reference, A-to-Z answer book for the rest of us. 
     
    Look elsewhere for how to bone skate or trim out a saddle of lamb, how to sauté sweetbreads or flambé dessert. Look here instead for how to zest a lemon, make the perfect hamburger, bread a chicken breast, make (truly hot) coffee in a French press, make magic with a Microplane. It’s all here: how to season a cast iron pan, bake a perfect pie, keep shells from sticking to hardcooked eggs. How to carve a turkey, roast a chicken, and chop, slice, beat, broil, braise, or boil any ingredient you’re likely to encounter. Information on seasoning, saucing, and determining doneness (by internal temperatures, timings, touch, and sight) guarantee that you’ve eaten your last bland and overcooked meal. 
     
    Here are 500 invaluable techniques with nearly as many color photographs, bundled into a handy, accessible format.

    Discover the best rums in the world with this guide by the international bestselling author of Whiskies Galore. Rum, once the poor relation of the spirit world, has undergone a revival and is no longer seen just as the preferred tipple for tipsy pirates. The craft drinks movement has certainly stimulated the rum world, with high numbers of new artisan rum brands launching around the world in the last few years. The rise of the rum cocktails is another successful trend, with the popularity of mojitos and Mai Tais contributing greatly to the growth and development of the rum market. Ian Buxton, the UK’s No.1 bestselling author on spirits, takes us on a tour of the different colors, flavors, creation methods and characteristics, and makes his pick of the best rums in the world. Whether you like your rum in cocktails, or prefer to sip it neat, this is the only book on rum you will ever need.   “An invaluable [book] for those who wish to make a foray into the rum revival armed with the requisite knowledge. Burning questions are answered with Buxton's trademark, inimitable wit, while what one should infer from rums different colors, nuances and creation methods is explained with concise authority. Expect, too, a refreshing lack of snobbery about mixers and cocktails.” —The Robb Report
