Hey fellow anons, does anyone know a good cook book that basically teaches you about food the way a college course would? I love cooking and have a heap of cook books myself, but I find it frustrating that most popular cook books just limit themselves to "throw X amount of Y into the pan and cook for Z time", without explaining why you need X amount and how you define Z time. I know a lot of cooking is learnt by doing, but I was wondering if there are any cook books that generally teach you about cooking theory?

Yep, that. Or, "The Professional Chef", which is literally a college textbook. The current version is expensive but you can get prior versions (just as good) on Amazon (or other used bookstore) for a fraction of the price.

Who's the author? I'm seeing several books with a title like that..

most of the other cook's illustrated cookbooks talk about the reasoning behind the recipes too.

Any of them. There's something like 14 editions of the book, perhaps more.

I have this one:
