cookbook search!!!! using "basic recipes" or formulas? [Moved from Cookware Board]

  • 3

help!
i read about this cookbook where this guy (vague, i know) basically noticed that all recipes for cakes had similar ratios, all pancakes, all crepes, all etcs basically have the same ratio. he has made a cookbook that has all the basic formulas or ratios...

if you have heard of it please let me know, i have been googling and am all googled out!!
you'd be surprised how many computer books i get when you put "formula"!!

haha

thanks in advance!!

    1. You might be interested in this Chow interview with Ruhlman. http://www.chow.com/stories/11708

      Also, he was an "expert in residence" for a week or so here on chowhound about a month ago: http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/6572...
