"What is the purpose of this book? I wrote it to empower even the most challenged person in the kitchen to come to grips with 'kitchen lingo', methods, tools, ingredients from A -Z and unusual recipes as well as terminology and spice recipes not easily found in your everyday recipe books. It puts it all in lay terms and opens up a whole new gastronomic universe for its user."
