Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

Cook's Illustrated prides itself on being a magazine with a clear purpose: finding the best methods for preparing foolproof home-cooked meals. Thus, unlike some of its glossy competitors, the periodical is staffed with three dozen full-time test cooks and editors, not food stylists. That level of expertise and rigorous recipe-testing makes this baking book an ideal tutorial whatever your level of expertise—and a repository to 450 recipes for cakes, pies, cookies, tarts, breads, biscuits, pastry, and more.

Publishers Weekly
03/31/2014
For those who may have wondered, America's Test Kitchen really exists. The Massachusetts space used for recipe testing is the heartbeat of Cook's Illustrated magazine. Known in the culinary world for its impeccable reputation, easily recognizable from the distinctive illustrations, the magazine maintains its tone and style throughout this encyclopedic collection that tops out at 450 recipes. Fifteen chapters, including Pies and Tarts, Pastry, Cookies, and Layer Cakes, are preceded by essential Baking Basics. For those unfamiliar with CI recipes, they are long, detailed and as precise as proper cooking and baking instructions should be. Right-page bars guide home cooks on everything from Mincing Anchovies to a Paste, to Uncracking Cracked Cheesecake, to Scoring Skilled Pie Crust. Readers won't find risky or daring flavor combinations or trend-setting baked goods within these covers, but can take comfort in the Classic Brownies, Classic Tart Dough, Genoise Layer Cake, and 24-Hour Sourdough Bread recipes that can be used year after year. Fans of the magazine, and those new to this esteemed test kitchen, won't be disappointed. (Oct.)

    love at first sight

    Made the German apple pancake on New Years morning. It was great! My husband loved it. All the hints really helped.

    Great Book!

    I also like anything that comes from cooks! I love that break every thing down. And they always compare the equipment or ingredients to determine which one is best! I have three books from them now and I use them all the time!

    I bought this book as a gift, then decided to buy one for myself

    I bought this book as a gift, then decided to buy one for myself, too. I've baked a few of the cookie recipes, as well as some of the quick
    bread recipes.  They have all turned out great.  I bring the baked goods to work to share.  All my co-workers are convinced I am a brilliant
    baker!
