Cookbook Recommendation

 

One of my favorite cookbook is The New Best Recipe.
This book comes from the editors of Cook’s Illustrated and America’s Test Kitchen.

The premise of the book is summed up in this little tagline on the book:  
Would you make 38 versions of creme caramel to find the absolute best version? We did. 

And that’s precisely what they did. They tested recipes for meat loaf, macaroni and cheese, brownies, and about 1,000 other recipes, all to find the “best” recipe. The editors “made the mistakes so you don’t have to”.  Every recipe I’ve tried has turned out delicious and I use this cookbook at home and at the business.

The instructions are simple and it also has many cooking guides as well as tips on what kind of equipment to get. There are a lot of hand drawn instructions on techniques such as beating egg whites and setting up your grill. Within each section, the authors teach you about the dish, what happened in their tests, and even a bit about the science of cooking.  It’s informative and mouthwatering!
