The title of this book says it all: The Best of America’s Test Kitchen 2017. Open the pages of this volume and you will be transported into our test kitchen through the words of our test cooks and photos that illustrate what we consider the most interesting recipes of the year. Out of the nearly 1,000 recipes developed in the past year for our magazines (Cook’s Illustrated and Cook’s Country), our cookbooks (including Cook It in Cast Iron; Paleo Perfected; The How Can It Be Gluten-Free Cookbook, Volume 2; and Foolproof Preserving), and our popular public television shows (America’s Test Kitchen and Cook’s Country from America’s Test Kitchen), the 150+ recipes showcased here take everyday dishes to another level—with a little test kitchen ingenuity.
In the introduction that precedes each recipe, the voice of the test cook who developed it shines through, bringing our testing process to life. Find out how we discovered the secrets to making Ultimate Charcoal-Grilled Steaks (start the steaks in the oven, and then give them a great char over the intense heat of the chimney starter), Best Baked Potatoes (we baked nearly 200 pounds of potatoes to find the secret to getting crisp skin, a fluffy interior, and even seasoning), and 100 Percent Whole-Wheat Pancakes (our no-frills recipe results in tall, tender pancakes with nutty, earthy flavor).
