So what's the ones you like? I just read Hamelman's book. It was good but a bit much into microbiology (I did like that since I'm an engineer) but not enough simplistic hands on thoughts . I got more from members here on this forum about steam then that book provided. I'm sure his recipes are good but maybe I should pester you guys more instead of buying books! :) But I just wondered what others are out there worth a read?
