Thoughtful gifts for curious people

Cooking for Geeks


| /

Have you ever wondered why a medium-rare steak is so popular? Why do we bake some things at 175°C and others at 190°C? And do you prefer to follow a recipe or are you more interested in finding out "what would happen if..."? More than just a cookbook, Cooking for Geeks applies your curiosity to discovery, inspiration, and invention in the kitchen. It's a perfect companion for anyone who'd like to know more about why we cook the way we do and what's going on when we do. The book is filled with interesting facts, recipes, interviews, and experiments. It's time to get cooking!
