Review: 101 Things I Learned in Culinary School

101 Things I Learnedâ„¢ in Culinary School isn’t a real hard book to get the concept of. It’s 101 pages long, each page having a drawing on the left side and a mini-lesson on the right — anywhere from one sentence to a few paragraphs.

That’s it, end of description.

And you know what? I think it’s great. Sure, I already know a lot of what was in it. But I picked up a few new things, too. And I learned the “why” behind a few more. As far as I’m concerned, anything that teaches me something new about a subject I care about is worth the time.

Not that it’s going to take a long time for this one. I’m not sure I should mention this, but this is the perfect book for the home reading room. Meaning the magazine basket you keep in the bathroom. (You do keep a magazine basket in the bathroom, don’t you?)

You can pick it up for five minutes, get a quick lesson or two, and put it back down. And when you’re done with it, you can pass it along to someone else who will enjoy it just as much.

Which is what I’m about to do.
