My 16 year old son has decided that he wants to learn to cook. However, he told me that he doesnt want to learn recipes, he would rather learn the techniques so that he could "improvise". Does anyone have any suggestions for a cookbook that I could use to build sort of a lesson plan for him? I am a pretty good cook, but I am really at a loss on the best way to teach him (e.g. start with sauces, braising etc). Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.
