Title: Cookwise( The Hows and Whys of Successful Cooking) <>Binding: Paperback <>Author: ShirleyO.Corriher <>Publisher: WilliamMorrow&Company

Review:

"Corriher is a well-known culinary consultant and problem solver whose answers to kitchen mysteries have appeared in many food publications. Now she has set down some of her vast knowledge in this big, wide-ranging reference/cookbook. In seven basic chapters, from The Wonder of Risen Bread to Sweet Thoughts and Chocolate Dreams, she explains why recipes work, what to do when they don't and how to make them even better (anyone who's ever wondered why the same cake recipe always tastes better when her neighbor makes it will find out the probable reasons why). More than 200 recipes interspersed throughout demonstrate Corriher's explorations and explanations. Also included are At a Glance charts for easy reference (e.g., Fine tuning cookies), trouble-shooting charts (Yeast Bread Problems), charts on the basics (Whipped Cream: What to Do and Why), and dozens more. Although the recipes are delicious--and surely foolproof--this unique work will be far more valuable as a reference than as a cookbook. Highly recommended."--"Library Journal"

"Besides the background procedures and transformations discussed in chapter introductions, Corriher spells out the science lesson to be learned from each of the recipes, e.g., chilling potatoes in the fridge converts some of the starch to sugar and promotes the browning process in Oven-Fried Herbed Potatoes. Corriher, passing up no chance to inform is a persuasive tutor with many terrific ideas.... Curious-minded home cooks who are satisfied as much by the process of cooking as by its other rewards will find much to relish here."--"Publishers Weekly"
