Is there a cookbook which will explain problems, solutions and reasons for cooking mishaps?

WEBBER COMMENT: The best most comprehensive book that integrates the science of foods and answers many questions that I have found is Cookwise by Shirley Corriher. It is well researched and yet practical for the interested food preparer, cook or first year foods person. It is published by William Morrow and Company.

Corriher, Shirley O. 1997. Cookwise. William Morrow and Company. New York.
