Publisher's summary

The James Beard Award-winning, best-selling author of CookWise and BakeWise delivers kitchen wisdom based on her knowledge of food science so that “cooks of any experience level will walk away from this sharp guide with some new tricks” (Publishers Weekly).

Want to cook fluffier scrambled eggs and more flavorful sauces, keep your greens brilliantly green, and make everything taste more delicious? KitchenWise combines beloved cooking expert Shirley Corriher’s down-to-earth advice with scientific expertise to address everyday cooking issues. Whether you are a beginning cook or a professional chef, Shirley’s guidance will save you time, and let you know exactly what to do behind the stove. A gifted teacher with a degree in chemistry, Shirley takes readers through the hows and whys of what she does in the kitchen, explaining the science behind common problems and offering solutions for how to fix them. (For example, salt has an amazing ability to suppress bitterness and allow other flavors to emerge.) Filled with Shirley’s favorite time-tested recipes, this guide shows you how to cook more successfully, why certain ingredients work well together, and what makes good food great.

Amazingly informative, approachable, and packed with proven techniques, KitchenWise serves up new ways to get the most from your cooking.
