Cookbooks by great chefs are a lot likebooks written by business gurus:
- Experts often don’t write well for the masses.
- There’s a difference between having it all and making do. A great chef may have a top-of-the-line Viking oven. Yours may be so-so.
- Cooking is situational. Most cookbooks don’t tell you how to adapt.
