The Science of Good Cooking: Master 50 Simple Concepts to Enjoy a Lifetime of Success in the Kitchen (Cook’s Illustrated Cookbooks)
Master 50 simple concepts to ensure success in the kitchen.
Unlock a lifetime of successful cooking with this groundbreaking new volume from the editors of Cook's Illustrated, the magazine that put food science on the map. Organized around 50 core principles our test cooks use to develop foolproof recipes, The Science of Good Cooking is a radical new approach to teaching the fundamentals of the kitchen. Fifty unique experiments from the test kitchen bring the science to life, and more than 400 landmark Cook's Illustrated recipes (such as Old-Fashioned Burgers, Classic Mashed Potatoes, andPerfect Chocolate Chip Cookies) illustrate each of the basic principles at work. These experiments range from simple to playful to innovative - showing you why you should fold (versus stir) batter for chewy brownies, why you whip egg whites with sugar, and why the simple addition of salt can make meat juicy. A lifetime of experience isn't the prerequisite for becoming a good cook; knowledge is. Think of this as an owner's manual for your kitchen.
Finesse the final course with confidence using this must-have companion for making dessert magic with 91 types of sweets and 600+ foolproof recipes.
Part cookbook, part handbook, Desserts Illustrated is the last word on the last (but definitely not least) course. In it, America's Test Kitchen far expands on previous explorations of the world of sweets, teaching all types of candies, custards, frozen treats, and fruit desserts in addition to a bounty of baked goods, and upping the ante on flavor. With 600+ recipes, you'll find modern desserts for bakers and nonbakers like Pear Crisp with Miso and Almonds and Ginger-Turmeric Frozen Yogurt living next to the classics like Shortbread and Sour Cream Coffee Cake.
An innovative book structure organizes desserts within a tasty taxonomy: Find 91 types of desserts. Discover what ingredients and mixing methods turn out all your favorite subcategories of sweets like Chewy versus Crispy versus Cakey Drop Cookies. Take a deep dive into desserts you may not know like Pudding Cakes. See how the stages of caramel turn into soft Pralines to crunchy Chocolate-Toffee Bark.
Learning transferable techniques makes you feel like a pastry chef: Once you’ve tempered eggs you can make any custard, pudding, or cream pie. Manipulate brownie batter for chewy, fudgy, or cakey squares—whatever you like.
The only dessert book you'll ever need: This modern classic incorporates in-depth info on techniques new and timeless, lots of stunning dessert photos and informative illustrations, tutorials to make more challenging recipes easy to follow, and new recipes with fantastic flavor.
With this forever dessert companion, you can impress for company—or quickly whip up something to satisfy a Tuesday sweet tooth.
