Cookbook Giveaway – Master Recipes

Master Recipes: A Step-by-Step Guide to Cooking Like a Pro by The Editors of Food & Wine appeals equally to new and experienced cooks. The new cook will love the step-by-step approach and process photos to guide them (homemade ricotta, roasting a turkey). The experienced cook will also love those points but more as a way of perfecting their skills and perhaps even expanding upon them (make your own ramen noodles, croissants).
