Why doesn't spaghetti bolognese exist?
After Le Manuel du Garçon Boucher, Arthur Le Caisne once again shakes up our neurons and our beliefs about cooking in nearly 700 whys and explanations. Utensils, ingredients, meats, fish and seafood, vegetables, preparations and cooking are all questioned. Each answer is based on the most recent scientific studies and experiments, and is always delivered with a good dose of humor and kindness.
Why is this so? And why? But why? If you have children, you've already been through the why stage: "Why is the sky blue? Why are green beans green? "Why is the pasta water overflowing? It is magic this period of the reasons because we learn a lot of things. And that's how we understand why the pasta water overflows (and how to avoid it), why you have to salt the cooking water of some vegetables but not others, why a stew prepared the day before is better, why you have to cook green beans in boiling water and potatoes in cold water, why strawberries and apples are vegetables...
And also why spaghetti bolognese does not exist... "A providential book, made of curiosity, advice and science, and which in addition to being useful, is moving" Nicholas Demorand - France Inter A great book!
It is the bible of cooking. William Leymergie - C8
You learn a lot of things in this fun book full of ideas. Stéphane Bern - RTL
Our well-established beliefs are swept away with humor and pedagogy. L'Obs Arthur Le Caisne, author "poil à gratter", brings answers to questions that we do not always ask ourselves. Le Monde
