    "You can learn to cook from Audio book!"
    What made the experience of listening to The Kitchen Counter Cooking School the most enjoyable?

    I enjoyed her gaining insight from each of her students and making me feel it is achiveable to be a better cook.
    I was able to incorporate many of her tips into my cooking, and I have noticed (and so has my family) a great improvement in my cooking

    "Much more than a cookbook"

    The author provides cooking skills in a thoughtful, fiction-like manner. I found this book Informative & enjoyable! It is much different than the author's previous book.

    "OK but it there are many better cooking books"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I would not recommend the book. I didn't like the reader and the book needs to supply pdfs of the recipes to be worthwhile. I also found the write condescending and patronizing towards her
