The saute station is the place all aspiring restaurant chefs want to be: the "hot seat" where the action happens. The same is true at home, where a good saute is both convenient and powerful: the key that unlocks the pleasures of Veal Scaloppini, Sauteed Mushrooms, Chicken Schnitzel with Sage Spaetzle, Sauteed Duck Breast with Rhubarb Gastrique, Flatiron Steak with Tarragon Butter, and more. Ruhlman cuts through centuries of misinformation to provide essential recipes and advice on how to achieve the greatest efficiency, flexibility, and flavor--using dozens of step-by-step color photographs to support cooks of all kinds.
