101 Things I Learned in Culinary School {REVIEW & GIVEAWAY}

Cooking has always been a passion of mine and I was so excited to learn more about the ins and outs of the culinary world by reading this book.  101 Things I Learned in Culinary School is a great book with 101 tips and quotes about cooking from the professionals.

Full Description

Louis Eguaras, a renowned chef at the Le Cordon Bleu Program at the California School of Culinary Arts, provides readers with a terrific overview of what is truly involved in the preparation, cooking, and presentation of meals. He also provides invaluable insights into just what is involved in making this one's chosen profession.

The book will feature a wide range of illustrated lessons, from how to properly hold a knife... to the history of food... from food preparation and presentation... to restaurant hospitality and management, and much more.

The book will be presented in the distinctive and highly-attractive packaged style of 101 THINGS I LEARNED IN ARCHITECTURE SCHOOL, and will be the perfect gift for anyone who is thinking about entering culinary school, is already enrolled, or even just the casual chef.


What did I think?

I love this book!  Like I said above, cooking has always been a love and I learned quite a few things about cooking from this book.  For example, did you know that spices were once used as currency?  Or that goats discovered coffee?  This book is full of little tidbits of information like this.  If you are at all interested in food or know someone who would like to go to culinary school, this is a perfect book!

The good news is you have a chance to win one of three copies of 101 Things I Learned in Culinary School right here!
