My Cooking Coach For cooks on any and all levels - novice to know-it-all - My Cooking Coach provides a quick reference that puts (as its slogan states) Cooking Knowledge at Your Fingertips. In this first-of-its-kind Hyper-eBook edition, more than 5,000 hyperlinks (page references in the print edition) provide instant access to five basic elements of cooking knowledge - Definition, Detailed Description, Cook's Guides, Cooking Considerations, and Master Recipes - for more than 1,000 terms used in recipes: Foods, Ingredients, Tools and Techniques. “This is the basic knowledge cooks on any level - novice to know-it-all - need to interpret recipes and cook more creatively,” says author, Charles Delmar. All of the knowledge in My Cooking Coach comes from Delmar’s first book, The Essential Cook, which won the prestigious Writings award from the IACP (International Assn. of Culinary Professionals) in 1989. In 2013, his website was a finalist for an IACP Digital Media award.
