What Good Cooks Know: 20 Years of Test Kitchen Expertise in One Essential Handbook. Never before has America’s Test Kitchen collected, in one volume, the enormous and indispensable wealth of information we have amassed in 20 years of teaching people how to cook. What Good Cooks Know is a fully illustrated almanac of food and cooking that includes everything you need to master your kitchen.
From foolproof techniques, including the best way to get a good sear on a steak and how to butterfly a chicken, to hundreds of invaluable product reviews, this one-stop reference has all the authority of the test kitchen’s extensive tasting, testing, and recipe development protocols behind it. You’ll also get tutorials on basic cooking skills and useful cooking science, 85 essential recipes (50 master recipes and 35 variations), and an extensive section of appendices packed with even more information. If every kitchen came with a manual, this would be it.
