One of my passions in life is preparing good food for friends and family. Recently, I found a cooking show on PBS I really enjoy called America’s Test Kitchen. These folks approach good cooking like good science; every recipe must have a best recipe. When I heard they had come out with a huge cookbook, The Best New Recipe, I had to get one. And it has not failed to impress thus far.
The genius of America’s Test Kitchen is they test, tweek and retest recipes over and over until they all agree they have reached culinary perfection. And they go through this process with over 1000 differenct recipes. The cookbook is also a very helpful technique resource from making a pie, to carving a turkey. Another bonus is their little comments on best food products to use, based on blind taste tests. Best of all their recipes are solid and explanations very insightful. Each recipe is its own lesson in food science. May it bless you like its blessing me!!
