You all know that I love cookbooks. And that I love to read. So when I was asked to review a copy of Harold McGee’s upcoming book – Keys to Good Cooking – I knew I couldn’t pass it up!!

Just a few tips that are shared in the book:

  • To make baked potatoes with a crisp skin, oil or butter potatoes before baking in a hot oven, 425-450F/220-230C. Baking without oil or in foil creates a leathery skin.
  • Don’t cut vegetables too finely before boiling. Cut surfaces release more flavor and nutrients into the water.

I can’t wait to read the book to see what other kinds of tips and information I learn. For the full review, make sure and check back on November 3rd!

    I've never seen a potato baked at 150F before. How long do you bake it?

    See now, that's why I need a copy of this book for myself – I had no idea about this stuff! I'm looking forward to your thoughts on the complete book. Thanks for being a part of the tour.
