In 1975, The Cooks' Catalogue was published to enormous critical and commercial success--hailed by The New York Times as a must for anyone interested in food and cooking. Now, on the 25th anniversary of the original publication, Burt Wolf, Florence Fabricant and a team of more than 100 of the world's leading food authorities bring us an all-new, thoroughly updated, expanded book.
This book provides information about the brands, sizes, and uses of over 1000 items of kitchen equipment, from paring knives to grill pans to espresso machines. Each entry is accompanied by a color photograph and includes tips on care, exceptional features and possible drawbacks. Also included are sections such as What to Look For when purchasing items, as well as recipes and sidebars by such culinary celebrities as Julia Child, Jacques Pepin, Alice Water and Mario Batali.
