Cook something for yourself. Cook something for others. It will satisfy you more than you know. We promise.
From the James Beard award-winning duo behind Canal House, a culinary, design, and photography studio that has produced many celebrated cookbooks, CANAL HOUSE KITCHEN BASICS is a book of essential recipes, the building blocks of all good cooking, to rely on for the rest of your life.
Each chapter focuses on an ingredient or a technique and takes it from the simplest (a boiled egg) to the most ambitious (a towering soufflé). Step-by-step photographs accompany techniques and instructions to clarify each cooking lesson, all of which are imbued with Canal House’s kitchen common sense and warm personal style.
A sophisticated yet accessible cookbook, this will be the essential book of culinary instruction for beginners, and ideas for already confident cooks.
