Book Giveaway: 101 Things I Learned in Culinary School (Ends 5/26) CLOSED

Tuesday, May 11, 2010 Posted by Dina N

Do you love to cook? Maybe you dream of becoming a chef? I have just the book for you! No, it's not another cookbook - it's an insider's look into meal preparation and presentation, written by a real chef! Read on...

Book 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.

    It's so difficult to narrow it down to one favorite dish. For cool days, a delicious corn and bacon chowder hits the spot.
