Master 50 simple concepts to ensure success in the kitchen. Unlock a lifetime of successful cooking with this groundbreaking new volume from the editors of Cook's Illustrated, the magazine that put food science on the map. Organized around 50 core principles our test cooks use to develop foolproof recipes, The Science of Good Cooking is a radical new approach to teaching the fundamentals of the kitchen. Fifty unique experiments from the test kitchen bring the science to life, and more than 400 landmark Cook's Illustrated recipes (such as Old-Fashioned Burgers, Classic Mashed Potatoes, andPerfect Chocolate Chip Cookies) illustrate each of the basic principles at work. These experiments range from simple to playful to innovative - showing you why you should fold (versus stir) batter for chewy brownies, why you whip egg whites with sugar, and why the simple addition of salt can make meat juicy. A lifetime of experience isn't the prerequisite for becoming a good cook; knowledge is. Think of this as an owner's manual for your kitchen.
A provocative, handpicked collection of relevant (and surprising) essential recipes for today's cook. We have countless recipes at our disposal today but what are the real keepers, the ones that don't just feed us when we're hungry or impress our friends on Saturday night, but inspire us to get into the kitchen? At the forefront of American cooking for more than 20 years, the editors at America's Test Kitchen have answered this question in an essential collection of recipes that you won't find anywhere else: 100 Recipes Everyone Should Know How to Make. Organized into three recipe sections--Absolute Essentials, Surprising Essentials, and Global Essentials--each recipe is preceded by a thought-provoking essay that positions the dish. For example, Treating Pasta Like Rice Simplifies Everything; A Covered Pot Is a Surprisingly Good Place to Roast a Chicken; and Re-imagine Pie in a Skillet to Simplify the Process. You'll find useful workday recipes like a killer tomato sauce that's almost as easy as opening a jar of the store-bought stuff; genius techniques for producing amazing flavor--try poaching chicken breasts over a garlic-and-soy- spiked brine (trust us, it's that good); and familiar favorites reinvigorated--the best beef stew comes from Spain (and it's even easier to make than the stateside stew you've been eating for years). Gorgeous photography (shot right in the test kitchen) accompanies every recipe, revealing the finished dish as well as highlights of its preparation. Likely to stir debate among anyone interested in food and cooking, 100 Recipes Everyone Should Know How to Make provides a snapshot of how we cook today and will galvanize even the most jaded cook to get into the kitchen.
Includes regional classics, staple side dishes, international recipes, weight-friendly recipes, as well as dishes made for entertaining. Offers an inside scoop on recipes the editors have voted the standouts of the year, compiled from the hundreds of recipes that appeared in print in our magazines and books and on our television shows.
You probably have a cabinet full of spices, but do you know how to make the most of them? The staff at America's Test Kitchen open up the world of possibility hidden in your own pantry. Each chapter shares a way to use spices to amp up the flavor of your cooking, along with foolproof recipes that put these simple techniques to work. They also share recipes for spice rubs you can make yourself. -- adapted from pages  and  of cover.
Turn meal prep aspirations into reality Our 25 weekly dinnertime meal plans strike just the right balance between guidance and flexibility so that you can customize them to fit your preferences and ever-changing schedule. ATK has done the work of building smart, varied meal plans that minimize shopping and kitchen time and let you choose from prep-ahead options, make-ahead options, and ingredient substitutions to make your life easier, your grocery bill lower, and your dinners better. Practical test-kitchen strategies include: * Prep all your vegetables and grains for the week in a weekend "power hour." * Prep big batches of pantry ingredients ahead in a "pantry power hour" so they're ready to go in a flash. * Cross-utilize fresh ingredients creatively to prevent food waste and dinner boredom. * Make, store, and reheat full meals with no loss of flavor. * Double meals or meal components to freeze half for later. Let's-get-real features simplify your kitchen life: * Weekly grocery lists max out at a dozen items. * Active cooking time for recipes maxes out at 45 minutes. * The Pantry Meals chapter showcases 30 meals that don't add anything to your weekly grocery list, making them perfect for any night you want. Follow one of the plans (with complete shopping and pantry lists and prep and substitution guides) to create fresh, delicious meals that everybody at the table will devour. Or mix and match among the 130 recipes to create your own custom plan. For times when it's just too much to commit to a full plan (we've all been there), every recipe is self-contained with prep-ahead and cook-ahead instructions. And even if you don't do anything ahead, you can still get dinner on the table fast. A thorough introduction explains how to build a strong, diverse pantry (and make the most of it), how to store prepped ingredients to keep them fresh, how to store cooked food safely, the smartest ways to reheat food, essential meal-prep equipment, and more.

It has been said that, "If you can read a recipe, you can cook." The sad truth is that many cooks today do not know enough of the basics of foods and cooking to translate recipes to cook with confidence, let alone creatively. My Cooking Coach is a 500 page cornucopia of cooking knowledge that provides, as its slogan states, "Cooking Knowledge at Your Fingertips " All of this cooking knowledge comes from a revised version of The Essential Cook, by Charles Delmar, winner of the prestigious "Writings" award from the International Assn. of Culinary Professionals (IACP). This new edition has been re-named and re-formatted in bite-sized pieces so it can be read as a quick reference from its Glossary/Index of more than 1,000 cooking terms, an important consideration for today's cooks who don't seem to have the time or the patience to read a textbook. Of course, it can also be read "Top-Down" as a book that one reviewer for the first edition described as "A really good, and informative, read." From Part One, First You Steal a Chicken: How to Plan, Select, Store, Prepare, Cook, Flavor and Serve most foods, through Part Three: How to Set a Dining Table and Other Facts of Life, with How Good Cooks Do It: Basic Cooking Methods and Techniques in between, My Cooking Coach uses clear, direct language and more than 400 informative illustrations, along with "Master Recipes," to explain the basic How-Tos and Whys of foods, ingredients and cooking. There are no conventional recipes in My Cooking Coach. Rather, the author uses what he calls "Master Recipes" that provide step-by-step instructions for cooking almost any food you can think of by any of the basic cooking methods usually used to cook that food: Dry Heat, Liquids, and Fats, i.e. Frying. "Master recipes are the themes, of which recipes are but individual variations," says author Delmar.
