Editorial Reviews

Review

“You need The Food Lab, as J. Kenji Lopez-Alt’s magnum opus is 2015’s most indispensable cookbook.”
- The Chicago Tribune

“[The Food Lab] promises tried-and-tested accuracy, groundbreaking technique and inarguable results. All that, plus humor.”
- Washington Post

“The ultimate book for science nerds who cook.”
- Wired

“Loaded with fascinating information…López-Alt gives you enough science for the explanations to make sense, but everything is still firmly rooted in practical home cooking.”
- Russ Parsons, Los Angeles Times

“Five years in the making, [The Food Lab is] a culmination of the wunderkind’s unlikely ascent into a cultish figure―and the face of a new kind of home cooking.”
- San Francisco Chronicle

“An authoritative, instant-classic reference book that’s also an engaging read.”
- Seattle Times

The Food Lab is a keeper.”
- Chris Kimball, Wall Street Journal

The Food Lab is The Joy of Cooking for the modern cook, and it has something to teach even the most experienced chefs.”
- USA Today

“A beautiful behemoth. . . . The Food Lab’s vision of “better home cooking through science”―and, I would add, through the internet―is a convincing one.”
- New Republic
