The Cook s Illustrated Cookbook Book Description :

The ultimate recipe resource: an indispensable treasury of more than 2,000 foolproof recipes and 150 test kitchen discoveries from the pages of Cook's Illustrated magazine. There is a lot to know about cooking, more than can be learned in a lifetime, and for the last 20 years we have been eager to share our discoveries with you, our friends and readers. The Cook's Illustrated Cookbook represents the fruit of that labor. It contains 2,000 recipes, representing almost our entire repertoire. Looking back over this work as we edited this volume, we were reminded of some of our greatest hits, from Foolproof Pie Dough (we add vodka for an easy-to-roll-out but flaky crust), innumerable recipes based on brining and salting meats (our Brined Thanksgiving Turkey in 1993 launched a nationwide trend), Slow-Roasted Beef(we salt a roast a day in advance and then use a very low oven to promote a tender, juicy result), Poached Salmon (a very shallow poaching liquid steams the fish instead of simmering it in water and robbing it of flavor), and the Ultimate Chocolate Chip Cookies (we brown the butter for better flavor). Our editors handpicked more than 2,000 recipes from the pages of the magazine to form this wide-ranging compendium of our greatest hits. More than just a great collection of foolproof recipes, The Cook's Illustrated Cookbook is also an authoritative cooking reference with clear hand-drawn illustrations for preparing the perfect omelet, carving a turkey, removing meat from lobsters, frosting a layer cake, shaping sandwich bread, and more. 150 test kitchen tips throughout the book solve real home-cooking problems such as how to revive tired herbs, why you shouldn't buy trimmed leeks, what you need to know about freezing and thawing chicken, when to rinse rice, and the best method for seasoning cast-iron (you can even run it through the dishwasher). An essential collection for fans of Cook's Illustrated (and any discerning cook), The Cook's Illustrated Cookbook will kee

Cook s Illustrated Revolutionary Recipes Book Description :

2019 IACP Award Winner in the Compiliations Category On the occasion of Cook's Illustrated's 25th anniversary, we've gathered together our most extraordinary recipes and innovations from the past quarter-century in this hands-on book packed with practical tips and techniques. These recipes tell the story of how Cook's Illustrated has changed American home cooking through its signature blend of rigorous testing, culinary research, science, and unorthodox approaches to developing foolproof recipes. As fans know, a big part of what makes the magazine so trustworthy (and enjoyable to read) is the essays that accompany each recipe, tracing from initial brainstorming to aha moments (and the occasional catastrophe) to final success. Rarely republished since they first appeared, these feature-length stories celebrate the art of food writing and the extensive work that goes into every recipe. In addition to the recipes, essays, and helpful sidebars, this book also features the trademark black-and-white illustrations that have become synonymous with Cook's Illustrated, creative use of the beloved front- and back-cover art, and a new addition: gorgeous, full-color photographs of each dish. Featured recipes include: Perfect corn on the cob that never gets boiled, ultracreamy tomato soup that's completely dairy-free, the fastest roast chicken recipe, "oven-grilled" London broil, and ingenious, low-key approaches to traditionally high-fuss recipes such as risotto, French fries, pie crust, and many more.

The Cook s Illustrated Meat Book Book Description :

Eminently practical and truly trustworthy, The Cook’s Illustrated Meat Book is the only resource you’ll need for great results every time you cook meat. Whether you have burgers, steak, ribs, or roast chicken on the menu shopping for and cooking meat can be confusing, and mistakes can be costly. After 20-plus years of purchasing and cooking beef, pork, lamb, veal, chicken, and turkey, the editors of Cook’s Illustrated understand that preparing meat doesn’t start at the stove it starts at the store. The Cook’s Illustrated Meat Book begins with a 27-page master class in meat cookery, which covers shopping (what’s the difference between natural and organic labels?), storing (just how long should you really refrigerate meat and does the duration vary if the meat is cooked or raw?), and seasoning meat (marinating, salting, and brining). Matching cut to cooking method is another key to success, so our guide includes fully illustrated pages devoted to all of the major cooking methods: sautéing, pan-searing, pan-roasting, roasting, grilling, barbecuing, and more. We identify the best cuts for these methods and explain point by point how and why you should follow our steps and what may happen if you don’t. 425 Bulletproof and rigorously tested recipes for beef, pork, lamb, veal, and poultry provide plenty of options for everyday meals and special occasion dinners and you’ll learn new and better ways to cook favorites such as Pan-Seared Thick-Cut Steak, Juicy Pub-Style Burgers, Weeknight Roast Chicken, Barbecued Pulled Pork, and more. The Cook’s Illustrated Meat Book also includes equipment recommendations (what should you look for in a good roasting pan and is it worth spending extra bucks on a pricey nonstick skillet?). In addition, hundreds of step-by-step illustrations guide you through our core techniques so whether you’re slicing a chicken breast into cutlets or getting ready to carve prime rib the Cook’s Illustrated Meat Book covers all the bases

The Best Meat Recipes Book Description :

No one likes a tough roast, a leathery chop, or a boring burger. And because meat is so expensive, mistakes are simply not acceptable - that is, unless you work at America's Test Kitchen. Our job is to test every possible cut and technique, along with countless skillets, knives, and roasting pans. We like to say that we make all the mistakes first, so you don't have to. Our recipes have been tested - and retested - so that we know which cut is best for a particular recipe, which cooking techniques work)and which ones don't - and which pieces of equipment are essential. Want your holiday ham to come out right? Too scared to try prime rib at home? Is it possible to make real barbecued spareribs on a conventional backyard grill? The Best Meat Recipes contains more than 300 foolproof recipes - everything from grilled T-bone steaks and beef burgundy to shish kebab and smothered pork chops. And since great meat recipes begin at the meat counter, we've included an opinionated shopping guide that rates 70 poluar cuts for flavor and value. We tell you which roasts are worth the money and which roasts are not worth the trouble. You'll learn why the best steaks come from the short loin and why a bone-in spiral-cut ham from the shank end is our favorite choice. If you love meat, now you can really enjoy it with all the best recipes gathered here in one complete and practical cookbook.
