Remember way back when I was first starting out cooking, and I asked you for a copy of Harold McGee’s On Food and Cooking. I was just a hack kid in the kitchen, desperate to learn more about the science behind the art that had all but consumed me. You quickly obliged, and I took that knowledge on a journey that I wouldn’t trade for anything.
Now, that I’ve grown, my interests and profession are taking another turn, and again I turn to you to bring me a book that will do for me what Harold’s did for me back then. Andy Budd wrote CSS Mastery, yet another brilliant insight into the “science” behind the “art” that has taken me onto my most current journey. I’ve muddled my way through so far, but I trust that with the guidance this book offers, I can excel in this medium in a similar manner that I did with my last discipline.
P.S. If you happen to find room in your bag to add a new Mac Book Pro and a 20” cinema display, I promise to be a really, really, good boy.
