Cookbook on techniques with photos

zorgclyde | Feb 26, 2008 08:29 PM

I'm looking for a cookbook that really focuses on techniques of cooking, but one that pertains to home cooking, with lots of good photos. Does anyone have particular book they really like?

A book I saw was Fundamentals of Classic Cuisine by FCI in B&N, which has gorgeous color photos and excellent step-by step. Has anyone here used the book?

I noticed that a lot of these books seemed to be based on French cusine, which I don't really cook. I was wondering if that matters really, or if the techniques they mention is easily transferred to other styles.
