There is only one book that brings the best of the nearly 1,000 recipes we develop each year directly to America’s Test Kitchen fans. The Best of America’s Test Kitchen 2010 is a virtual yearbook of the most interesting work produced by the kitchen, pulled together from nearly every corner of our company. This year’s collection of more than 200 recipes includes: Creamless Creamy Tomato Soup, French Mashed Potatoes, Savory Bread Pudding, Pizza Bianca, Garlicky Shrimp Pasta, Steak Tacos, Enchilades Verdes, Best Old-Fashioned Burgers, EAsy Caramel Cake and much, much more!
5 Stars Great Cookbook for Beginner or Experienced Cook
The write-up with each recipe adds meaning to the procedure and outcome. The Test Kitchen’s trial-and-error methods prior to publishing the final recipe made me feel confident that my end product would be a success. I’ve tried 3 recipes so far and would make them again and again. The brilliant photos gave me a visual so I knew where I was headed in addition to making it appealing enough for me to even attempt. I really like the suggested brand of ingredients and utensils to buy — cuts to the chase when needing to make an intelligent purchase. This is one of the most useful cookbooks I’ve ever owned, and I have tons that just sit around. I expect I will be using this one for years to come. It would make a great gift for a new cook, but I’ve recommended it several times already to friends that have enjoyed cooking for many years.
5 Stars Step-by-step photos accompany both equipment and ingredient recommendations for foolproof results
Also recommended is THE BEST OF AMERICA’S TEST KITCHEN 2010, a survey of 150 recipes culled down from the 1,000 developed for the company’s popular magazines, books, and TV shows. Step-by-step photos accompany both equipment and ingredient recommendations for foolproof results.
5 Stars Great book by a great publisher
Cook’s Illustrated is our favorite cooking magazine and this book sums up an entire year of recipes. Easy to follow, explanatory, scientific – takes all the guess work out of cooking. I gave the book as a gift and it was much appreciated.
4 Stars Gift for daughter-in-law
I ordered this for my daughter-in-law for Christmas. She seems well-pleased with both the cookbooks I got her–both the 2009 and the 2010 editions.
5 Stars very informative with great recipes
I have been enjoying reading thru this cookbook. I don’t own enough of this line to comment on recipes being repeated. What I like is that once a recipe has been tested all the results including the flops are described. This should save me from repeating the mistakes. The recipes I have tried have been excellent. I particularly like the fact that I can now skip looking for the magazine every month, I have the entire year in one book. Put last years volume on my birthday list, hope I get it! The product reviews are helpful, sort of a mini consumer reports dedicated to kitchen gear.
