James Beard Award-winning food writer Michael Ruhlman is the author of critically acclaimed books including Grocery, The Soul of a Chef, The Elements of Cooking, Ratio, and Ruhlman’s Twenty. In From Scratch: 10 Meals, 175 Recipes, and Dozens of Techniques You Will Use Over and Over (Abrams Books), Rhulman looks at 10 favorite meals, including roast chicken, the perfect omelet, and paella—and then, through 175 recipes, explores myriad alternate pathways. A delicious lasagna can be ready in about an hour — or you could try making and adding some homemade sausage. Ruhlman will tell you how you can explore the limits of from-scratch cooking, including make your own pasta, grow your own tomatoes, and make your own homemade mozzarella and ricotta. Ina Garten, Barefoot Contessa cookbooks & television, said “I love this book!! Michael Ruhlman is a genius cook and teacher. Through the recipes for 10 classic meals, he covers how to cook almost anything. From Scratch inspires me to be a better cook and I know you’ll feel the same way I do!”
