Richard J. Hebein
The Old Professor’s Cookbook
This is not your run of the mill cookbook. Inspiring and detailed, it is meant to be a teaching book, addressing an audience of varied culinary ability. The included delicious recipes vary in difficulty and detail. But it is not just a series of wonderful recipes. Professor Hebein has included descriptions of basic cooking techniques, along with a brief introduction to each included recipe, explaining its essence, strengths, historical context, and possible garnishes and accompaniments. Professor Hebein has been told that he can’t cook the same thing twice, so he also gives suggestions for experimenting. He has even included a few prank recipes to fool your guests. This refreshing cookbook gives readers a supportive and light-hearted way to learn to become a better home cook, to excite their culinary curiosity, and give them motivation to keep learning.
