Best technique cookbook?

pearlyriver | Aug 7, 2011 12:41 AM

HI all.
I'm on the lookout for a really good go-to technique cookbook that teaches the fundamentals of cooking, not 'recipe book'. After doing my homework, I've narrowed down to Complete Techniques by Jacques Pepin, The Way to Cook by Julia Child and Sauces by James Peterson. If you can only buy one book, what would it be? Any recommendation outside those mentioned above is welcome.
