Cooking methods for mastering the perfect, satisfying texture each and every time.

Succulent shrimp, juicy steak, vegetables bursting with fresh flavor—the secret to cooking exceptional food is keeping it luscious and tender. In this technique-focused guide to delectable dishes, Kathy Hunt delivers recipes for global appetizers, mains, sides, desserts, and sweet baked goods. Written for novice and accomplished cooks alike, this masterclass in texture inspires an appreciation for the skills needed to craft exquisite mouthfeel, an often overlooked facet of cooking.

From stir-frying noodles and sautéing fish to grilling delicate vegetables and roasting hearty meats, Luscious, Tender, Juicy covers a wealth of preparation techniques. Hunt explains how to keep food tender and flavorful, an essential aspect of delectable food. The final two chapters, “Luxurious Cakes, Pies, and Puddings” and “Velvety Cookies, Pastries, and Breads,” focus on sweets that wouldn’t be enjoyable (or even edible) if they weren’t fluffy, molten, or gooey.
