Award Winning Author James Peterson
Writes Another Must Have Cookbook

Comments Off 27 October 2010

Review by Lea McIntosh

Sitting in one of my first culinary courses at the California Culinary Academy, I (a newbie chef) eagerly awaited elusive tidbits about the secrets of cooking from my instructor. Well, one of those secret never-forgotten gems was Sauces, by James Peterson.

After class, I ran out, purchased the book, and flipped through every single saucy page. Since then, Sauces, and all the other books that followed by award winning author James Peterson, have earned a special and permanent place on my cookbook shelves.

His most recent release (and addition to my cookbook reference faves) is: Meat – A Kitchen Education. This book offers basic through advanced butchery and cooking techniques for a variety of meats including beef, pork, chicken, turkey, and even such game meats as rabbit, hare, and venison. Are you ready to leave behind the days of tasteless chicken, overcooked steaks and learn to master meat? Then, this book is a must for you! Sneak a peek at some of the books pages here.


Are you looking for great gift ideas for your favorite foodie? In my opinion, one or the complete library of James Peterson cookbooks will make any home cook, newbie chef, or seasoned pro smile. A few more of my favorite James Peterson cookbook titles…
