Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A culinary sleuth solves common cooking mysteries with 159 foolproof recipes

Christopher Kimball, founder and Editor of Cook's Illustrated and host of America's Test Kitchen, is the author of the popular newspaper column, The Kitchen Detective, appearing in 27 newspapers across the U.S. Each week the Kitchen Detective solves culinary mysteries by testing recipes and cooking techniques and then explaining the how's and why's of the recipe development process. This book offers the Kitchen Detective's best culinary cases — with 159 foolproof recipes (including variations) for everything from braised short ribs and coca cola chicken to pumpkin cheesecake and perfect pancakes. In addition to the recipes, entertaining essays explain how the Kitchen Detective cracked the case, 50 sidebars share his tried-and-true tips, cookware recommendations, and ingredient preferences, and 86 black-and-white photographs highlight some of his most intriguing findings. None of the recipes in The Kitchen Detective have appeared before in Cook's Illustrated magazine or cookbooks.

Review:

"Running the gamut from starters to dessert, the selection of recipes chosen reflects Kimball's eclectic tastes to provide a very personal collection that will appeal to those who like to know the why as well as the what." Publishers Weekly

Review:

"The book skirts the borders of kitchen science, but the recipes — not fancy but good — ground it successfully in the realm of home cooking." Library Journal
