OUR REVIEW


Who doesn't like good food?! The Complete America's Test Kitchen TV Show Cookbook has everything you need to know about testing out Home Cooking. Their recipes are chosen after trying out at least a dozen or so versions of a recipe, presenting their best one. The test cooks on the TV show are not actors but real cooks using real kitchens, as revealed in this book.

This book also has many suggestions on what to look for when buying your kitchen gadgets and equipment so you don't have to waste your time and money trying out what might be the latest but useless item.

It's almost impossible to describe the amount of knowledge that is shared in this book, as it's not only a cook book but bits and pieces of how recipes are developed, what it takes to become a test cook, and how this all comes together.

I have to say, we watch this show on TV, but having the book at our side makes it fun to try our hands at new and tasty recipes.
