Perusing through this book shows me that it lives up to it's name. A cooking coach is exactly what it is. It has the in-depth details that many cookbooks assume you already know. It explains how ingredients are used, how cooking techniques operate and how to best used frozen foods.
If you are a beginner you will appreciate how detailed this book gets. I'm not a beginner and I'm seeing plenty of things that will change my kitchen techniques for the better. I can imagine giving this to a young person just setting up their own household or a person that loves to cook for more inspiration.
I haven't tried any recipes out of it yet but to me, a book like this isn't really about the recipes, it's about giving you the know-how so that every recipe you try turns out great.
The only reason I gave this 4 stars is because he gives bits of nutritional information throughout with nutritional recommendations and I didn't always completely agree with his recommendations. If you stick to the cooking advice, 5 stars.
I received this book from Netgalley and I appreciate the opportunity to read and review it.
