Title: Taste & Technique: Recipes to Elevate Your Home Cooking
Author: Naomi Pomeroy

My Review:
 The introduction to this cookbook was especially fascinating to me. James Beard Award-winning and self-made chef Naomi Pomeroy's personal story had me reminiscing to reading Kitchens of the Great Midwest. By sharing her ups and downs in her journey as a chef, she connects with home cooks in a way some more famous "celebrity chefs" simply cannot. As a home chef myself, I was looking to learn a few things from Pomeroy's debut cookbook. However, as the title states, these techniques are a bit elevated and not necessarily something I will be doing in my kitchen on a random Tuesday night. I will reference the cookbook if I ever need to make something a bit fancier and I someday I will try her Classic French Onion Soup recipe. The photos are minimalist Instagram perfection and I found myself wishing for the physical version of this cookbook rather than the e-version I was reading from, but I think that about most cookbooks. Taste & Technique is divided into sections by meal course (salads, vegetables, fish, desserts, etc.) and would be a perfect addition to a home chef's bookshelf when they have advanced past kitchen basics.
