Adam Roberts of Amateur Gourmet could roast a mean chicken and simmer a decent sauce, but, like a really hungry person after eating a salad, he was still not satisfied. So he set out to learn more. Normal people read more cookbooks, maybe take a class or cook a new recipe per week. Adam starts cooking side-by-side with the nation’s best chefs. No big deal.

In a move that may render his whole blog title inaccurate (can we even call him an amateur anymore?), he piles all of the tips, tricks, and brilliance he learns into a brand new, shiny book called Secrets of the Best Chefs. You’ll want it on your shelf. ??As he describes: “Secrets is the kind of cookbook I’ve always wanted to have in my collection: a book that filters the sensibility of brilliant chefs through the sensibility of a home cook (like me).”

You’ll have to wait until October 9th, but if you want to get a jump on things, it’s available for pre-order now. Adam promises it will make you into a better cook.

I have a wonderful little book published in 2004 called "Chef's Secrets: Insider Techniques from Today's Culinary Masters," as told to Francine Maroukian. It will be fun to compare the two. ;o)
