This is a multi-million-dollar project with high visibility, high impact, and broad opportunities. Once again, we will completely reorganize this book to reflect the way that people cook in the kitchen today, with the best of foods and flavors from around the world. The book reviews ingredients, equipment, and skills of the professional chef. It then explores the techniques for the full range of food items: vegetables, potatoes, grains, legumes, pasta, meats, fish and seafood, poultry, eggs, fruits, soups, sauces, quickbreads and cakes, yeast breads, doughs and crusts, cookies, custards, creams and frozen desserts, and chocolates and confections. With a good understanding of techniques, the reader will then learn plating techniques for salads, sandwiches, hors d' oeuvres, appetizers, entrees, and desserts. In this new edition, information on global cuisines will be intergrated throughout the chapters and recipes, to reflect the increasing globalization of cooking. The revision will also include an all-new chapter on Plated Desserts, including information on composing successful desserts and planning a restaurant dessert menu, as well as recipes for impressive multi-component plated desserts, and will cover topics of growing importance such as sous vide cooking, seasonality, and sustainability. The new edition features a new user-friendly design and structure, guiding readers through the basic principles behind each technique at a glance, and then providing more in-depth information along with step-by-step photography. Complete with hundreds of recipes and four-color photographs throughout, this is the essential reference for any aspiring chef, culinary student, or cooking enthusiast.

Taking the Heat

Women Chefs and Gender Inequality in the Professional Kitchen

A number of recent books, magazines, and television programs have emerged that promise to take viewers inside the exciting world of professional chefs. While media suggest that the occupation is undergoing a transformation, one thing remains clear: being a chef is a decidedly male-dominated job. Over the past six years, the prestigious James Beard Foundation has presented 84 awards for excellence as a chef, but only 19 were given to women. Likewise, Food and Wine magazine has recognized the talent of 110 chefs on its annual “Best New Chef” list since 2000, and to date, only 16 women have been included. How is it that women—the gender most associated with cooking—have lagged behind men in this occupation? Taking the Heat examines how the world of professional chefs is gendered, what conditions have led to this gender segregation, and how women chefs feel about their work in relation to men. Tracing the historical evolution of the profession and analyzing over two thousand examples of chef profiles and restaurant reviews, as well as in-depth interviews with thirty-three women chefs, Deborah A. Harris and Patti Giuffre reveal a great irony between the present realities of the culinary profession and the traditional, cultural associations of cooking and gender. Since occupations filled with women are often culturally and economically devalued, male members exclude women to enhance the job’s legitimacy. For women chefs, these professional obstacles and other challenges, such as how to balance work and family, ultimately push some of the women out of the career. Although female chefs may be outsiders in many professional kitchens, the participants in Taking the Heat recount advantages that women chefs offer their workplaces and strengths that Harris and Giuffre argue can help offer women chefs—and women in other male-dominated occupations—opportunities for greater representation within their fields.
