Great book, but it hardly has any useful recipes. Most of the recipes are useless (making a turkey sandwich) Anyways, I'm keeping my eye out for a recipe book like this, but with more advanced recipes

This book is good for someone just starting out on their own. The recipes are simple and the diagrams reflect the steps accurately. I'm an experienced cook and I learned some new techniques and I can't wait to try these recipes out on my family.

About the author

Rego and Sinem Sen are siblings that grew up in Minnesota and found their way to San Francisco.

Rego is a jack-of-all-trades software engineer with degrees from MIT and Stanford. He shied away from cooking until he developed a visual way of representing recipes, which he found to be more intuitive to a technically-minded person. After working for established companies for 10 years he decided to pursue some his own ideas, one of which has resulted in this book. 

Sinem studied Entrepreneurship at University of St. Thomas in Minnesota. She has always had a passion for business and bringing creative ideas to life. She learned how to cook from her mom and continued to experiment in the kitchen. Once she saw her brother’s amazing way of transcribing recipes as diagrams, she thought it was hilarious yet brilliant. This is when the wonderful idea for this book was created by her and her brother.
