I'm looking for a rigorous, systematic approach for learning how to cook a new type of cuisine. I don't really care which one, I just want to learn something new. The ideal cookbook I'm looking for would start by listing any specialized cookware and pantry staples, then lay the groundwork through basic staples, all the way up to advanced banquet-type dishes. As little cute editorializing and fluff as possible. Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated.
