To become a good cook requires more than the blind following of a recipe… To become a good cook means to gain a knowledge of foods and how they behave, and skill in manipulating them. The recipe by itself, helpful as it is, will not produce a good product; the human being using the recipe must interpret it and must have skill in handling the materials it prescribes. ~ American Woman’s Cookbook edited by Ruth Berolzheimer, Director Culinary Arts Institute, Chicago, Illinois.
