The cooking geeks of America's Test Kitchen are back. Over the years, we've spent thousands of hours performing all sorts of kitchen tests in pursuit of a best recipe, some of them so wacky, we ultimately abandoned the ideas. But sometimes our whatever-it-takes approach pays off. Back in 2004, we collected the results of our efforts, 1,000 foolproof recipes, into our flagship book The New Best Recipe
. And these recipes are no joke. They work the first time and every time.
Ever since, we've been working on our next collection, More Best Recipes, where we have developed new (and sometimes better) ways to make everyone's favorite foods. These are truly groundbreaking recipes that will change the way you cook — such as supercrisp roast chicken, pan-seared thick-cut steaks, artisan-style bread that requires almost no kneading, and pie dough ANYONE can make. And while we were at it, we tackled popular recipes from around the world, looked into the best approaches to make-ahead cooking, scaled down recipes to serve two, and actually found a way to produce great meals from that ubiquitous 1970s appliance, the slow cooker. And because quality ingredients and equipment make a difference in good cooking, we offer dozens of unbiased product ratings from measuring cups, cutting boards, and standing mixers to balsamic vinegar, ricotta cheese, and breakfast sausage. With More Best Recipes, you'l get more of the best America's Test Kitchen has to offer: a wide-ranging repertoire of more than 600 recipes that work and honest, useful solutions to common cooking problems.
This companion to the popular The New Best Recipe cookbook offers a comprehensive collection of 650 foolproof recipes, up-to-date equipment ratings, and ingredient taste tests. Features more than 500 illustrations throughout.
