4.0 out of 5 stars Buena calidad de las hojas y muy ilustrado
Reviewed in Mexico on 24 November 2020
sin embargo, las tapas llegaron algo maltratadas,

posiblemente por manipulacion en libreria o transporte, ya no lo devolvere por que internamente esta muy bien y sin daños,

pero si eres amante de los libros, puede sufras por los daños esteticos que trae, y si tienes acceso prefieras comprar en tienda o liberia para garantizar este inmaculado,

el libro se ve muy bueno, en la foto el detallito que nombro me toco a mi. La calidad de las hojas y las ilustraciones es buena, y cantidad de temas que toca es mayor a la que esperaba,

toda sección viene con graficas e imagenes, es bastante infográfico

lo compre para regalo, creo le encantará a la persona lo recibirá.

5.0 out of 5 stars Intricate perfection
Reviewed in Canada on 26 April 2020
A tactfully written book that came in due time, in hardcover that could last for years and is full of relevant information set in a practical, but not suffocating manner. It has several illustrations and lively explains with images the composition and technical parts of different meat cuts or the elements from a scientific perspective of a roux, or even how a meringue deflates in the presence of egg yolks. I couldn't have picked a better book to really push me into the details of culinary work.
I would really recommend.
