Technical men or women behave above all rationally. They solve problems and follow through. The guests of the engineer are always satisfied, the food is served on time, and nothing gets left over. Managing the whole is an intellectual challenge for the engineer and preparing food successfully gives him deep pleasure.
The Engineer’s Cookbook gives a systematic presentation of the principles behind the engineer’s cooking skills. It helps the engineer to see what is essential in food, to recognise his own strengths, and to adapt his skills to make good food.
For those not technically educated, the book offers an exhilarating insight into the inner life of the engineer – and dozens of practical and clearly-illustrated recipes that allow everyone to prepare delicious food easily.
