We are are excited to announce the launch of Volume 1 of The Culinary Library book series: Alchemy of the Mortar & Pestle. The primary focus of the book series is to help foster a solid foundation of culinary skills for all cooks with a series of small paper back editions on specific food tools, groups of foods and cooking techniques. Slowly add to your own Culinary Library by collecting each book and mastering new skills and techniques.

There is no question that cooks and chefs love the Mortar & Pestle but creating culinary magic using this ancient tool requires more than ownership. This volume of The Culinary Library includes hundreds of ideas and recipes that will delight both the professional and amateur cook, including sauces, curries, spice pastes, marinades, compound butters, ethereal oils, potions, lotions and elixirs. For the culinary apprentice the rewards of mastering this ancient tool are great, and just when you begin to think you are nearing the end of the adventure, you will find, magically, that it is just the beginning.

Alchemy of the Mortar & Pestle is now available for purchase and preview at Amazon.com. Just follow the link below:
