Most of you have my new e-book "No Fear Entertaining - Cooking 101". If you don't yet have it you can get it by signing up for my Free monthly newsletter in the form on the top of this page. You will automatically gain access to the e-book which is full of information on the techniques of cooking. I have covered every technique and broken it down into every day terms and expressions.
One thing that I think I should cover in a new e-book is equipment. Yo can not underestimate the importance of having good quality equipment that will not fail you! How many times have you tried to bake cookies on a pan that just wasn't as good as it was last year? Either they stick or they burn don't they? The same thing happens when you use equipment that is not up to par for he job you are doing. Now I am not saying that you have to go out and buy the best of everything to be able to cook but some of the basics will help!
