I loved this book! It's an inspiring account of 9 women who felt lost or useless in the kitchen being guided, step by step, of cooking basics. Kathleen Flinn recognized that many people would eat better food if they knew the fundamentals, like how to hold a knife to maximum effect, creating simple soups (and making your own stock), what is braising and why/when to employ it, etc.
Ms Flinn is a wonderful writer, walking the line between informative and fun. I'm going to be reading this book again, this time with a highlighter so I can refer back to key passages in a pinch (and I'll NEVER re-sell it).
