“Ruhlman’s Twenty: 20 Techniques, 100 Recipes, A Cook’s Manifesto,” the new cookbook by author, blogger, and Anthony Bourdain buddy Michael Ruhlman arrived on my doorstep on Saturday and I’m really looking forward to trying out some of its recipes. I’ll give it a proper a review in a few weeks, but I really like the look of it so far. The photography, taken by Ruhlman’s wife, looks superb, and the focus on learning technique rather than individual recipes is good for someone at the start of their cooking education, such as myself.
I’ll let you know how the recipes have gone and take a look at the results later this week when I get started making some of the recipes. First up, his recipes for French onion soup, a classic that my brother has taken on, but that I have yet to attempt to make.
