When my friends said they would give a big present for my anniversary, I thought they were joking. But boy, were they serious? They gave me this humongous book which is very difficult to carry around. I cannot put it on my lap lest I risk injuring some precious assets nor can I keep it on my lightweight table.
That said, the book is wonderful. It has various techniques, information, tips, some beautiful pictures, many cooking jargons that I never came across and yes, recipes.
