Although most of the America's Test Kitchen recipes are available on-line, this cookbook puts them at your fingertips and all in one place. It also includes a wealth of supporting information and purchasing guides.

Like the America's Test Kitchen TV show, the material here is not "just" a compilation of recipes. It's a education. Virtually all recipes include the "whys' of the ingredients and processes chosen, not just a list of directions for you to blindly follow.

It's large, heavy and worth its weight in gold, or at least maple syrup.

I love cookbooks that I will actually use. If you follow the instructions you can't go wrong with this one. The evolution of each recipe is explained along with why certain things don't work. The experiments have already been done. Some of the cake recipes are absolutely fabulous and these alone are worth the price of the book. If you read cookbooks like novels wou will really enjoy this one.

I bought the predecessor to this book (which contained ten years worth of recipes from the show) a few years back, and by late last year I realized that my beloved copy was absolutely filthy, marked-up, and bedecked with little post-it notes flagging all the recipes I ever wanted to try. Plus, the Tex-Mex section fell out every time I opened it up. So I decided there were only two courses of action to take: 1) buy a new copy (with four more years included! Yeeha!) and 2) finally write a review of the book that has revolutionized my cooking.

I’ve made more recipes in this book (approaching the 70 mark) than from any other cookbook I’ve ever owned, and believe me—I own cookbooks the way Imelda Marcos owned shoes (well almost, anyway). I will say that although perhaps two of the recipes that I’ve tried have been kind of “meh” with my family, not a single one has bombed, and many, many of these are recipes that I make frequently and will forever be in my repertoire. Here are a few highlights:

CHICKEN: Weeknight Roast Chicken with Tarragon Pan Sauce (heavenly—I could sip the sauce like a fine wine), Peruvian Roast Chicken with Spicy Mayonnaise, Chicken Piccata (I make this a couple of times a month, and it’s also very good with shallot and prosciutto), Cassoulet (divine!), Chicken Canzanese (a huge family favorite!) plus a number of chicken recipes in the Tex-Mex section.

PORK: Sautéed Pork Cutlets with Mustard-Cider sauce (mmmm…), French-Style Pot Roasted Pork Loin (elegant, fabulous, and restaurant-worthy), Breaded Pork Cutlets (Schnitzel-- phenomenal, and one of our favorite things), Cassoulet (again) and a couple of pork recipes from the Tex-Mex section (again).

I just received my book today and made Beef Stroganoff since it is a cold weather food in my mind and it is freezing here.

The stroganoff was the BEST I HAVE EVER EATTEN. I did substitute Top Round for Beef Tips though and that was the only change to the recipe. The recipe was easy to follow and remarkable test..........

I would highly, highly, highly recommend this boo. BTW, for those who say this book is to big and to heavy I say boo-hoo and really...! I would much rather have a book packed with info than a book which is tiny. AND what I did was simply write out the recipe on another paper and took it was me shopping; you could also print the recipe out on a printer.

I could not believe people would complain about the size of this amazing book. If all else fails you can use it as a 5 lb. weight and get your pecks built up...........

I hope everyone buys this book. My complete favorite and I own about 60 or so cookbooks from all over the world.

I ordered this for my husband and he loves it. The book explains 'why' the receipe given works, gives options and great simple detail to preparing the dishes. Excellent cook book. Best one I have bought in the last 40 years.

I received this earlier in the week and there are so many recipes I can't wait to try. I watch America's Test Kitchen weekly and learn so much, however, things go in one ear and out the other so I purchased this. Very thorough. I love it. It gives all the tips and very detailed instructions. Oh! I have to mention BIG. It must be 2 inches deep and weighs a ton (thank goodness there is something that weighs more than me, lol). Well worth every penny.

With this cookbook, I've finally made convincing Ciabatta loaves at home. Wowed my guests with delicious chicken noodle soup. Pad Thai is awesome. Blueberry scones were super. All recipes I've tried are reliable and produce excellent results, but these aren't quickie recipes. The scope is grand with every possible recipe from Tex Mex to french cuisine.
