Synopsis

The America’s Test Kitchen Cookbook is the companion volume to the new hit public television series based on the recipes, techniques, and taste tests created by Cook’s Illustrated magazine. Filmed in the actual Cook’s test kitchen, both the television series and the cookbook set out to find the best methods of preparing your favorite home-cooked foods from the simplest tomato sauce to the fanciest French tart.

More than just a collection of recipes, this beautifully photographed book takes you inside the entire 2002 season of the America’s Test Kitchen series, with 26 chapters each dedicated to a different episode of the show. You will meet the cast – through photographs, bios, and quotes from each member – and will follow the America’s Test Kitchen process, as Christopher Kimball and the rest of the cast identify common cooking problems and then test dozens of variations to come up with the best methods for preparing recipes. Many of the most popular segments of the show, including the Science Desk, Equipment Corner, and tasting Lab, have been brought to life with photos.

With more than 200 recipes and dozens of beautiful, behind-the-scenes photographs, The America’s Test Kitchen Cookbook is sure to become an indispensable part of any cook’s library.
