In this her eighth book, best-selling cookbook author, Susie Fishbein shares secrets for success in the kitchen…”Recipes, Tips and Techniques to Make Anyone a Better Cook’. Kosher by Design Cooking Coach is a hands–on, instructional book that presents a new approach: ten coaching sections containing “Game Plans” for refining one’s culinary skills, covering everything from meat and poultry to equipment selection and technique.
- Most essential kitchen equipment
- How to make can’t-miss side dishes
- How to skin and pin-bone fish
- How to prep fresh herbs
- Why you only need 3 primary kitchen knives
- What you must know about meat and poultry
- Plating and garnishing made simple
- How to “reincarnate” your leftovers
How to “reincarnate” your leftovers or leftover ingredients is a theme throughout the cookbook and is broached at the beginning of the book in the "Playbook" section. It alerts the reader to a symbol appended to those recipes that are part of this concept. It offers the reader different options on how to turn leftovers into different dishes, masking the idea of a “leftover” meal.
Cooking Coach presents 120 brand new recipes, for varied skill levels, along with 400 full–color photos by the talented John Uher.
