Seems simple enough. Right? Pick up a book, choose a recipe, start cooking. But no. If you want to get the most out of your new cookbook, take your time to get to know it! Here’s how I do it…
- Read the book and the recipes like any other book… get a feel for the story and how it’s being told.
- Read the recipe for ingredient and equipment needs, then gather your mise en place.
- Read the recipe one last time before cooking. This time, visualize each step as you go. Make mental notes of unusual techniques or transition places.
- Enjoy the process!
