Book Giveaway-101 Things I Learned in Culinary School by Matthew Frederick and Louis Eguaras

I have three copies of this book to giveaway. Please leave a comment about your favorite dish and be sure to leave your email address. This contest is open to US and Canada but no PO Box addresses. Winners will be chosen on May 1.

Louis Eguaras, a renowned chef at the Le Cordon Bleu Program at the California School of Culinary Arts, provides readers with a terrific overview of what is truly involved in the preparation, cooking, and presentation of meals. He also provides invaluable insights into just what is involved in making this one's chosen profession.

The book will feature a wide range of illustrated lessons, from how to properly hold a knife... to the history of food... from food preparation and presentation... to restaurant hospitality and management, and much more.

The book will be presented in the distinctive and highly-attractive packaged style of 101 THINGS I LEARNED IN ARCHITECTURE SCHOOL, and will be the perfect gift for anyone who is thinking about entering culinary school, is already enrolled, or even just the casual chef.

  13. Hmmmm. I'm not sure what my favorite is. There aren't too many things that I make often. I usually just cook on the weekends, and when I do I am trying new recipes. One thing that I do make often is my chili. My boyfriend loves my chili!
