In His How to Cook....! series, Chef John Vargo relies on his no nonsense approach to cooking, along with his thirty years behind a stove at some of the most prolific restaurant concepts imaginable.
The techniques found in these guides will enable novice cooks as well as seasoned chefs to demystify cooking's long held secrets.
John is 5 times removed in culinary lineage from August Escoffier, the infamous "Father Of Modern French Cooking". Anyone who is familiar with classic French training will tell you- cooking is technique, recipes are guidelines.
John gives solid techniques in these primers, and a few recipes that utilize those techniques so that the reader can gain instant gratification and understanding of methods discussed.
Each guide is a chapter of what will eventually be a full course on cooking. Upon completion of the series, which will be extensive, John plans to compile, further edit, add photos and make available a hard bound book.
The USDA has in the past done the same thing to assist farmers, cooks, and homesteaders.
John appreciates useful comments and reviews, which he will consider as he compiles the complete course. Your purchase of each chapter is a type of crowd funding for this project that gets you a first look at drafts and the creative process of writing a cookbook.
