Yes, it's being pre-sold.


I like Peterson's Sauces. His other books are a bit anal, but he seems to have encyclopaedic knowledge of many things.


I think I still have his Fish and Seafood somewhere. Maybe I'll find it soon, probably next to my Mexico the Beautiful Cookbook :))

I love James Peterson because he taught at my school but the guy is about as anal retentive with his instructions as RLB.  While his food may be spectacular, I find he overcomplicates things that should be simple.


I guess I see him as a "slightly lesser Thomas Keller."


This didn't stop me from buying Soups and Sauces.
