100 Recipes: The Absolute Best Ways To Make The True Essentials

We rated this book:


Gorgeous photographs are the first impression, followed quickly by the awareness of how huge this book is, both in size and content. One hundred ‘essential’ recipes, but in the hands of America’s Test Kitchen, that runs to over three hundred thick, glossy, detailed pages that are a pleasure and a revelation. Each recipe is written with a care you’d expect if it were the only one, with why the recipe works and then the recipe itself, in clear, accessible, friendly language that is easy to follow. Potential pitfalls are addressed (‘butter should not brown’), and of course multiple variations are included. Each has been tested extensively to ensure you have the best, tastiest, most reliable way to create the dish.

Readers will love learning the science behind the recipes, which will inform all their cooking and baking as they apply the lessons learned here. Sections are Absolute Essentials; Surprising Essentials; and Global Essentials; learn the ideal way to make scrambled eggs, mashed potatoes, grilled cheese; roast beef to banana bread; Chicken Tagine to Spanish beef stew.

Mastering even a few of this list of one hundred will put you well on the way to becoming a serious, accomplished home cook.
