My Cooking Class replicates a professional cooking course and will transform how home cooks learn to prepare dishes and meals. Every ingredient, pot, pan and tool is shown, not just described, making this new visual cookbook format deliciously simple. Often overlooked, steaming is an easy way to cook healthy meals at home. The versatility of cooking with steam is often overshadowed by its association with low-fat foods and dieting. The recipes in Steaming Basics produce hearty dishes that will satisfy the palates of the most demanding family members. The book covers: condiments, butters and sauces; dim sum favorites; easy vegetables; stuffed dishes; light suppers; dishes in papillotes (a cooking method that involves wrapping meats, fish or vegetables in greased paper); desserts.
