Here in America's Test Kitchenby Cook's Illustrated, John Burgoyne (Illustrator)
The companion cookbook to our acclaimed public television series, Here in America's Test Kitchen brings you everything -- every recipe, every kitchen equipment test, every tasting, every discovery, even every flop from the 2003 season. Best of all, this handsome, photo-filled volume lets you share the discoveries and fun on your schedule -- not the network's!
From the search for perfectly crisp -- not flabby and greasy -- Buffalo wings to the best cherry cobbler that pairs real cherry flavor with a tender, feather-light biscuit topping…this companion volume puts you right at the side of the America's Test Kitchen detectives. Unlike most television shows and cookbooks, however, this one gives you a close-up look at our failures as well as our successes. After months of testing, our recipes for lemon meringue pie, twice-baked potatoes, and pan-roasted chicken are reliable because we've tested dozens of possible ways (including many failures) of making them.
In the pages of Here in America's Test Kitchen, you'll get a behind-the-scenes view of how we test recipes, taste-test foods, and put cookware through its paces. You'll meet the cooks, the editors, the tasters, the directors, and the rest of the staff. Filled with candid shots and 32 pages of color photos, you will get an intimate portrait of the inner workings of the Cook's test kitchen.
America's Test Kitchen is all about discovering how cooking really works, rooting out the bad recipes, and identifying the methods and techniques that produce real winners. Now you can have all of the recipes, the techniques, the taste-tests, the equipment ratings, and the shortcuts from our 2003 season in one volume.

Just bought this cookbook in December and already, i've cooked a lot of recipes from this book. I'm so addicted to this cookbook that i'm getting myself a subscription to Cooks Illustrated. This book gives you all details on the tests they've done with the recipes so it makes cooking more pleasurable.
