Master 50 simple concepts to ensure success in the kitchen. Unlock a lifetime of successful cooking with this groundbreaking new volume from the editors of Cook's Illustrated, the magazine that put food science on the map. Organized around 50 core principles our test cooks use to develop foolproof recipes, The Science of Good Cooking is a radical new approach to teaching the fundamentals of the kitchen. Fifty unique experiments from the test kitchen bring the science to life, and more than 400 landmark Cook's Illustrated recipes (such as Old-Fashioned Burgers, Classic Mashed Potatoes, andPerfect Chocolate Chip Cookies) illustrate each of the basic principles at work. These experiments range from simple to playful to innovative - showing you why you should fold (versus stir) batter for chewy brownies, why you whip egg whites with sugar, and why the simple addition of salt can make meat juicy. A lifetime of experience isn't the prerequisite for becoming a good cook; knowledge is. Think of this as an owner's manual for your kitchen.

Now an accomplished chef and author in her own right (and mom to a young daughter), Alex pens a cookbook for the way we eat today. For generations raised on vibrant, international flavors and supermarkets stocked with miso paste, harissa, and other bold condiments and ingredients, here are 300 recipes to replace their parents’ Chicken Marbella, including Glazed Five-Spice Ribs, Roasted Eggplant Dip with Garlic Butter Naan, Roasted Beef Brisket with Pastrami Rub, Fennel and Orange Salad with Walnut Pesto, Quinoa Allspice Oatmeal Cookies, and Dark Chocolate Rum Pie.

“It amazes me that so little has been written about the two foods we eat most often. Here is a book that tells us about these two ingredients—one essential to life, the other the flavor of almost everything we eat. . . . A book like Ms. Jordan’s is long overdue.” —James Peterson Salt is indispensable. Pepper is superfluous. Michelle Anna Jordan guides you through this cookbook where “saltandpepper” is a one-word dictionary term in her kitchen vocabulary. You’ll learn all there is to know about salt and pepper, even so far as to where and how they grow. This exquisite cookbook will go over the necessities of salt, and the luxury of pepper via 135 seasoned recipes. Serve your friends, family, and party guests with delicious recipes and first-hand facts behind the science of one of the culinary world’s dynamic duos. The Good Cook’s Book of Salt and Pepper separates itself from other competitors by offering scientific facts, a healthier exposure to salt and pepper, and some interesting worldwide trivia. Did you know that India produces the leading amount of pepper and that the United States is its largest consumer? Did you know that shrimp and small crustaceans cooked with spices are common throughout Asia and South America? And that salt is an essential ingredient in coaxing out the flavor of nearly all grains? Recipes in this book include: Au poivre rouge steak Three-peppercorn bread Roast pork with black pepper Seafood roated with rock salt Pepper-crusted pizza with porcini, fontina, and sage Skyhorse Publishing, along with our Good Books and Arcade imprints, is proud to publish a broad range of cookbooks, including books on juicing, grilling, baking, frying, home brewing and winemaking, slow cookers, and cast iron cooking.

Our list includes French cooking, Swedish cooking, Austrian and German cooking, Cajun cooking, as well as books on jerky, canning and preserving, peanut butter, meatballs, oil and vinegar, bone broth, and more.

Turn meal prep aspirations into reality Our 25 weekly dinnertime meal plans strike just the right balance between guidance and flexibility so that you can customize them to fit your preferences and ever-changing schedule. ATK has done the work of building smart, varied meal plans that minimize shopping and kitchen time and let you choose from prep-ahead options, make-ahead options, and ingredient substitutions to make your life easier, your grocery bill lower, and your dinners better. Practical test-kitchen strategies include: * Prep all your vegetables and grains for the week in a weekend "power hour." * Prep big batches of pantry ingredients ahead in a "pantry power hour" so they're ready to go in a flash. * Cross-utilize fresh ingredients creatively to prevent food waste and dinner boredom. * Make, store, and reheat full meals with no loss of flavor. * Double meals or meal components to freeze half for later. Let's-get-real features simplify your kitchen life: * Weekly grocery lists max out at a dozen items. * Active cooking time for recipes maxes out at 45 minutes. * The Pantry Meals chapter showcases 30 meals that don't add anything to your weekly grocery list, making them perfect for any night you want. Follow one of the plans (with complete shopping and pantry lists and prep and substitution guides) to create fresh, delicious meals that everybody at the table will devour. Or mix and match among the 130 recipes to create your own custom plan. For times when it's just too much to commit to a full plan (we've all been there), every recipe is self-contained with prep-ahead and cook-ahead instructions. And even if you don't do anything ahead, you can still get dinner on the table fast. A thorough introduction explains how to build a strong, diverse pantry (and make the most of it), how to store prepped ingredients to keep them fresh, how to store cooked food safely, the smartest ways to reheat food, essential meal-prep equipment, and more.
