Ruhlman's How to Braise

Book 2, Ruhlman's How to... - Foolproof Techniques and Recipes for the Home Cook

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


The second in a new series of highly accessible and instructive single-subject books covering basic to advanced techniques that will make you a better cook.
According to James Beard-award winning cookbook author Michael Ruhlman, "Braising is what cooking is truly about--transformation. You start with a tough, often inexpensive, cut of meat, and through your care and knowledge as a cook, you turn it into something tender and succulent and exquisite. That is true cooking, cooking that engages both mind and soul."

Among the recipes featured in this second book in Ruhlmans's new "how-to" series are Moroccan Lamb Tagine, Classic Yankee Pot Roast, Mexican Pork and Posole Stew with Dried Chilis, Braised Fennel, and a Corned Beef and Cabbage Braise.

As with the other books in this line, practical information about essential tools and staple pantry items will be outlined,along with straightforward and clearly presented advice and dozens of colorphotographs showcasing both finished dishes and step-by-step cooking techniques.

From Publishers Weekly

Sep 28, 2015 – In the introduction of this vibrant primer on the art of braising, prolific cookbook author Ruhlman (How to Roast) notes, "There is pleasure to be had in the aroma of floured meat sizzling in hot fat." Anyone who shares that sentiment will want to dive into this handy guide, and anyone without a Dutch oven would be well advised to purchase one along with the book. Ruhlman provides a 12-page overview of the basics, exploring proper searing techniques and the wide world of braising liquids, from beer to milk. Refreshingly, the recipe count is not overwhelming. There are a mere 20 dishes, most accompanied with succulent color photos by Ruhlman's wife, Donna Turner Ruhlman. Recognizable classics with French overtones include osso buco, braised lamb shanks, and beef stew, and there are a few intense international dishes as well, such as North African lamb tagine. Even the lowly turkey leg gets a royal treatment, served with leek and sage bread pudding. Less delightful is the typography used for the instructions, with every verb distractingly in bold-faced capital letters. "SALT and PEPPER the shanks," yells the osso buco recipe, belaying its delicate nature.
