Synopsis by Cecilia Cygnar
You will learn how to cook like a professional cook in this instructional video, led by master chiefs Craig Claiborne and Pierre Franey. Claiborne, who was the food editor of The New York Times from the late 1950s to the 1980s, and Franey, who used to write the "60-Minute Gourmet" food column for the Times, are long-time cuisine collaborators and the authors of many cookbooks. Step-by-step instructions are followed for a variety of dishes in four complete menus. The special techniques and recipes for each dish are included, in addition to a small cookbook filled with tips from the two chefs.
