While a meal doesn't have to be fancy or expensive to taste good, there's no denying the impact the right cookware and tools can make. For more than forty years, the culinary aficionados at Sur La Table have helped cooks of every ilk stock their kitchens; now, they've packed their considerable expertise into this informative (and beautiful!) how-to guide. Things Cooks Love begins with "The Basic Kitchen," which outlines the cookware, knives, and other tools every cook should have. Next, it tackles the use and care of such specialized implements as a potato ricer, a mortar and pestle, a chef 's torch, and more. Finally, "globe-trotting" chefs will find advice for stocking pantries and equipment cupboards with everything you'll need to whip up delectable Asian, Mexican, French, Indian, Italian, Iberian, and Moroccan dishes. Oh, and did we mention the recipes? There are more than 100 to be found here, including Stilton-Stuffed Burgers with Carmelized Red Onions and Balsamic Vinegar, Creamy Polenta with Two Cheeses, Sushi Rolls, Mango and Chipotle Chile Guacamole, Mussels in Fennel and Orange Broth, Coconut and Curry Lamb Stew, Cornish Hens with Basil and Mint...
