Overview

MORE BEST RECIPES starts where the bestselling The New Best Recipe*, which featured the very best of our first 10 years of magazine publication, left off. Our dedicated staff of test cooks and writers have winnowed down the previous six years'-worth of recipe development to collect their top discoveries for your favorite recipes.

More Best Recipes features 650 of the best recipes from the last six years, as well as up-to-date equipment ratings, supermarket ingredient tastings, and invaluable teaching guides and step-by-step illustrations.

Along the way we improve and modernize classic American dishes-recipes like Slow-Roasted Beef, where we show you how to turn an inexpensive cut like eye round into a buttery, tender roast that rivals beef tenderloin in flavor and texture; a surprisingly simple approach to baking bread (almost no kneading!) that yields a loaf with an artisan-style crust, and a recipe for yellow layer cake with all the fluffy tenderness of a mix, but without the artificial flavors.

From soup to desserts, you'll find family favorites like Buffalo Chicken Wings, French Onion Soup, American Potato Salad, Four-Cheese Lasagna, Crisp Roast Chicken, Pan-Seared Inexpensive Steaks, Glazed Pork Tenderloin, Slow Cooker Pot Roast, Blueberry Muffins, Skillet Pizza, Brown Sugar Cookies, and Old-Fashioned Chocolate Layer Cake. We've also included recipes specifically designed make-ahead recipes and recipes designed just for two servings.

As with all of our books, you'll find our best money-saving equipment ratings and taste tests to steer you in the right direction when making purchases large (stand mixers) and small (capers). Featured up-to-dateratings and testings include cutting boards, vegetable peelers, and baking equipment to butter, balsamic vinegar, ricotta cheese, dark chocolate, breakfast sausage vanilla ice cream, and dozens more.

As with every America's Test Kitchen cook book I own, I love it! The recipes are great, and always turn out wonderful food!

I bought both this and The New Best Recipes and have enjoyed both. I rarely use any other cookbook!

Easier to use than the 1st book, "The New Best Recipes", because there is an index at the start of each section. Have already tried the fabulous Thai-Style Chicken Soup, Empanadas, Cuban-Style Pork Roast, drop biscuits, Dark Chocolate Mousse & Pots de Creme-all turned out perfectly. Plus, you can watch the TV program on PBS-no cable necessary.

This cookbook is more than just a cookbook. They go into wonderful discussions of recipes they tried before coming up with the perfect recipe for each food. We have tried a number of recipes since receiving it at Christmas and they have been exceptional.

I really am a huge fan of CI and love their work although I felt this book took the 2nd tier of best recipes and made this book. It left me feeling a little disappointed. What is really strange is that the book and the mag recipes don't match so I have no idea which is best. Very frustrating. Anyway I don't mind this but it is a little repetitive. Go back to getting the original for real WOW value. Leave this one for someone who isn't really into cooking but likes to impress others by what is on the shelf.
