Preface. In February , I started putting together this cookbook. These meatballs are a bit different from the Cook's Illustrated ones. First. can cook the pumpkin, sugar, and spices together before pureeing and then whir the mixture in a blender, adding enough of the cream called for in the recipe to. Our magazine editors and test cooks explain exactly how and why our recipes work. We are the authority on food and cooking, with science to back it all up.
For instance, they might have enjoyed the dish from their childhood, wanted to simplify a typically time-consuming recipe, or tried a dish in a restaurant that they wanted to recreate. The article then follows the recipe's development, which invariably begins with numerous problems in its original incarnation.
The author then describes iteratively modifying the recipe's ingredients and cooking method, each time presenting the recipe to a panel of tasters who provide feedback. At the end of the article, the author reaches a final recipe and lists the ingredients and preparation instructions, often with minor variants.
Recipes typically include hand-drawn illustrations of any difficult cuts or other uncommon preparation. Recipes in the magazine often utilize unorthodox, but easy, inexpensive, and commonplace ingredients and instructions. Each magazine also includes a detailed taste test, in which a panel of tasters evaluates different brands of ingredients such as ketchup, dark chocolate or balsamic vinegar.
Often, a category is sub-organized into purposes, such as "best teas plain" and "best teas with milk ". The magazine also applies this process of testing and evaluating to kitchen tools and products. In the case of more expensive pieces of equipment, an overall winner as well as a "best download" are selected. Both types of tests sort their results into four categories: Highly Recommended, Recommended, Recommended with Reservations, and Not Recommended.
As with recipes, much space is devoted to explaining the selection and testing process, and any exceptions to the general conclusions. In addition to the featured test, most issues test a few other products with less detail, where the best and worst brands in each category are presented with a brief description of the products' highlights and drawbacks. The magazine also features a "Kitchen Notes" section, providing tips on completing common cooking chores, often relevant to the recipes in the issue; a "Recipe Update", in which the magazine provides variations on recipes from previous issues; "Quick Tips" submitted by readers; and "Notes from Readers", in which the magazine's editors respond to reader questions.
Even though I went to culinary school, I still learn things from this magazine the cookbook is compiled from their top magazine recipes sometimes and most home cooks could soak up this stuff like a sponge because it's SO helpful: These are all recipes where they compared lots of recipes and the test kitchen cooks chose the best--not just a bunch of recipes because they had flavors that were new.
So, for example, while there are loads of recipes you'll come across and love that you may not have seen before like the caramelized onion dip rather than the usual "French Onion Dip", there are also the tried and true ones that they perfected, like deviled eggs.
And they tell you why that recipe works the best. Even though this book is so loaded with recipes that you aren't going to have pages and pages taken up by photos because the pages here all contain recipes--a huge amount there are illustrations, like using a plastic bag to pipe the filling into deviled eggs, and how to do it for those cooks who have not used that method.
The directions for each recipe are far more detailed than with most cookbooks. For example, rather than saying "Use a large pot" It will say "Use a pot that 9 quarts of liquid will fit in" For the pros, you'll likely pick up not only new recipes, but new skills as well. How can you not with this amount of info? You also have several versions of dishes so you can make choices.
So while you'll learn how to clean shrimp easily and perfectly for the shrimp tempura, for example, you'll also be able to choose from several dipping sauces or even make several different ones so that your guests have choices.
Such as: Teppanyaki Mustard Dipping Sauce Ginger Soy Dipping Sauce Chili Aioli Dipping Sauce All of which can also be used with the Spanish Style Garlic Shrimp Recipe Every kind of recipe is available no matter what your special dietary needs are or what the occasion for cooking may be, whether a family meal or lavish gourmet party, whether vegetarian or all meat, appetizers, even spiced nut recipes and loads of desserts.
At the start of each recipe it says "Why this Recipe Works" and you learn a lot from why that version is better than many recipes out there, and you know it will turn out right. For example, there are tons of pie crust recipes on the internet and in cookbooks--their test kitchen tries out the most popular and the experts tell you which recipe won and why.
So while there are already nearly reviews on this cookbook, I loved it enough that I had to share some of the contents to help you see the range of recipes and why this may be one of those books you hand down to the next generation with notes and highlights in the borders--it just has so much inside: Yes, this one is extensive I had a bag gf potatoes and this gave me so many different ideas that they were gone quickly!
If you have anything like that that you aren't sure to cook with--basics like green beans, rice, broccoli, etc--you can simply look through the index of this book and see what ingredients you have on hand to make something out of. Or what you want to run to the store to create, gourmet or simple.
I find myself reaching for this cookbook above all others lately because I know that no matter what I cook it will be tried and true and the flavors working beautifully together. This has so many recipes that it's like owning a collection of cookbooks such as loads of dessert cookbooks, bread cookbooks, breakfast cookbooks, side dish cookbooks and every kind of main dish cookbook You'll surely find something you love!
This looks beautiful on your kitchen counter, either laying flat or like I have it, closed on my cookbook holder.
Beautiful cover and ready to assist you when needed. Worth every penny. This cookbook is a must for anyone interested in cooking.
It includes a wide range of recipes from salads, meats, breads, quick breads and so on. Cooks Illustrated is known for having recipes that taste great and are essentially fool proof.
I've used it frequently for pizza recipes and other random ones. There are more recipes in here than I will ever use. I use other cookbooks and Pinterest as well, but there are many recipes online that are not actually very reliable. I've also learned that not all cookbooks are great.
After going through some online flops, I go back to my Cook's Illustrated to see why the recipes didn't turn out. The only downside is that the recipes in there are classics, but I think it is essential to understand how to cook these before trying more adventerous culinary endeavors.
Also, there aren't really illustrations. Only a few random ones to demonstrate how to perform a certain technique. I guess you can't blame them because the book is already so fat. Imagine how huge it would be with increased illustrations?
As a bachelor this is about the only cookbook I need. The recipes work. I don't have time or patience to deal with "good idea" recipes that fall flat. What hooked me on Cooks Illustrated is their yeast-raised waffles.
The only knock I give it is that it still has that aspect of cookbooks where simplicity takes a detour. I don't have buttermilk powder. I'm sorry. I can't make those waffles. The amount of content you get for the price is amazing. This book is loaded with recipes. It's nuts.
What's also cool is that if you're searching for recipes and the internet points you to Cook's and you're blocked by their paywall , chances are high that it's in this book.
So it's like having an online membership with them. If you want just one good cookbook for an experienced cook, this is the one I would recommend. It has a huge number of great recipes. Cooks Illustrated is the brand of a very good cooking magazine, and these recipes come from 20 years of the magazine.
They cover most everything. But they are abridged from the magazine, lacking the discussion of all the variations that were tried in evolving the recipe, and lacking lots of illustrations. Still, for a cook with some experience, this is about as good as it gets in one cookbook. It has more explanations and illustrations, and for a beginner, that is helpful -- no, it's necessary. If you're thinking wedding gift for young couple, I'd go with the Family Cookbook instead of this one.
About half the recipes, more text and pictures. Much more fun to read! You'll get inspirations for tricks to try on other recipes. If you like that sort of thing, consider the New Best Cookbook. But again, for an experienced cook who wants just one all around cookbook, then I'd still suggest this cookbook as the one.
