From the Back Cover:
"If you want to know why onions make you cry, are terrified by hollandaise or curious to find out why good cooks add old oil to new, this is the book for you. The recipes not only tell you the what, but also the why. I learned a lot." –Ruth Reichl, editor of chief, Gourmet

"Russ Parsons not only unravels some of the intrigue of the kitchen but, in entertainment fashion, shows us why this understanding matters. The great recipes are a bonus and make How to Read a French Fry invaluable." –Mark Bittman, New York Times columnist and author of How to Cook Everything

"With passion and enthusiasm, Russ Parsons explains the science behind kitchen common sense, then illustrates it with recipes. His book makes me feel smarter and more in control. As if that's not enough, the recipes are some of the most appealing ever." –Deborah Madison, author of Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone

"Mouthwatering recipes, fascinating information and charming commentary." –Paula Wolfert, author of Mediterranean Grains and Greens

"Russ Parsons knows that the best cooking comes from a genuine understanding of basic techniques, and he illuminates them here with lively writing and smart recipes. This is an unlikely creation: a kitchen-science book that makes you hungry, and it's also a cookbook that teaches, from an authority on food and cooking." –Thomas Keller, chef and owner of the French Laundry and author of The French Laundry Cookbook
