Publisher Comments:

Many years in the making, this comprehensive cookbook delivers more than 1,200 foolproof recipes for classic American family fare in a clear, accessible style. Beautiful step-by-step photos illuminate every conceivable technique from chopping shallots and rolling out pie dough to cutting up a chicken and tying a roast. In fact, just about anything you want (or need) to do in the kitchen will be explained in these pages in the test kitchen's approachable, no-nonsense voice. In addition, the recipes will keep you busy (and your friends and family happy) for years to come since we've included hundreds of easy weeknight dishes (like Skillet Lasagna and One-Pot Chicken and Rice), company and holiday-worthy dinners (like Beef Burgundy, Roast Leg of Lamb, and Flourless Chocolate Cake), dozens of menus, shopping tips, equipment ratings and more.

A cooking tutorial between two covers, The America's Test Kitchen Cookbook is the one and only basic cookbook you will ever need, covering every course, from appetizers to desserts, plus chapters on breakfast, sandwiches, sauces and condiments, and beverages. Friendly and to-the-point test kitchen tip boxes accompany the recipes and point out either where you might go wrong, or a special technique or ingredient that makes the recipe successful. Helpful charts (like primers on steaming vegetables and cooking grains) and Cooking 101 pages (covering topics like brining meats, buying cheeses, and how to prepare crudités) make this a reference unlike any other. Bound to get America back into the kitchen again, this is a family cookbook for generations to come.

Review:

"The 800-plus pages in this thorough volume are crammed with accessible, family-friendly recipes, variations, tips, product and brand information, and technique instructions from the crew at America's Test Kitchen. At the same time, it feels almost as intimate and friendly as a specialty cookbook from a single chef. Recipes range from utterly simple (Easy Homemade Pita Chips, Perfect Popcorn, and the Simplest Green Salad) to somewhat more involved — but never intimidating — contemporary interpretations of such dishes as Pasta Primavera, Chicken Piccata, Rosemary Foccacia, and Triple Chocolate Chunk Pecan Pie. All the basic food categories are included, starting with appetizers, salads, sandwiches, soups and stews and moving through fish and shellfish, poultry, meat (plus a separate chapter on grilling), slow cooker and pressure cooker meals and all kinds of baked goods and desserts. The preface promises that 'the recipes in this book will work in your home kitchen almost all the time,' and the extensive, repeated testing reportedly conducted in America's Test Kitchen backs up that promise, meaning this volume could easily become a foolproof go-to resource for everyday cooking." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Synopsis:

A revision of the Fall 2005 BookSense pick and bestseller, this edition features a new light recipe chapter, more than 1500 color photos, heavy duty paper and binding, over 2 dozen new recipes, and handy new cooking charts. This instant classic belongs on the shelf of every home cook. Publisher's Weekly called it "a foolproof, go-to resource for everyday cooking." The new edition is bound on five rings, shrink-wrapped, and durably packaged.

About the Author

America's Test Kitchen is a real place: a no-nonsense, fully equipped test kitchen located just outside Boston, MA, where a team of highly qualified test cooks and editors perform thousands of tests every year. The goal? To develop the best recipes and cooking techniques, recommend the best cookware and equipment, and rate brand-name pantry staples for home cooks. America's Test Kitchen is devoted to a collegial approach to cooking — teams of editors, writers, and cooks engage in side-by-side comparisons, blind taste tests, and rigorous equipment performance tests to determine which pans work and which ones don't, which brand of ketchup tastes best, and so on.

America's Test Kitchen accepts no advertising. We are a private company with no affiliations with large publishers, cookware manufacturers, or food purveyors, which means that our content is unbiased and objective.
