The recipes from America's Test Kitchen make more than great television-they are developed with the home cook in mind and will work the first time you try them. That's because America's Test Kitchen is a real working kitchen, where every day dozens of test cooks develop, refine, and test recipes again and again (sometimes up to 100 times!) until they arrive at the very best, most foolproof versions. With this companion to our 2007 season, showcasing test kitchen favorites, we walk you step-by-step through every recipe prepared on all 26 episodes (including dozens of recipes that aren't shown on the program). We also give you all the valuable ingredient and equipment ratings from every episode, so that you can make informed choices when shopping. Simply put, good home cooking has never been this foolproof or fun. Book jacket.
