Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Kimchi

    • dinnermints on May 05, 2016

      Good, but a bit sweet for kimchi. I noticed that this version adds way more sugar than more traditional recipes I've seen. Also, not sure why the author states that it will only last two weeks in the fridge...sort of ridiculous for kimchi, which is still slowly fermenting and will probably be good for much, much longer than that.

With a good recipe guiding the way, homemade is always better. So why should today's home cooks stop at dinner? In this groundbreaking new cookbook from America's Test Kitchen, our editors and test cooks walk home cooks step-by- step through more than 100 of their favorite D.I.Y. kitchen projects, showing why everything from ketchup and corn chips to goat cheese and prosciutto turn
out better when you do it yourself. Another bonus: When you're in control, you can customize your D.I.Y. projects to suit your own taste. Want smokier bacon, tangier yogurt, or spicier mustard? America's Test Kitchen shows you how it's done right.

Our D.I.Y. projects are backed by the authority of the test kitchen. Let's face it: When you're investing your time and money in any kitchen project, you want great results guaranteed. With the experienced team at America's Test Kitchen leading the way, there will be no guesswork. Every recipe in this book has been kitchen-tested to ensure that it s not only manageable and fun for home cooks but, more important, also foolproof.

Stunning photography and detailed captions explain every step in every recipe. If you've always thought that making mozzarella, curing pancetta, and brewing beer sound intimidating, try our recipes. The combination of easy-to-follow photography capturing the recipe process and clear, approachable first-person captions by the recipes authors puts home cooks at ease. You'll also discover what inspires the people behind America's Test Kitchen the test cooks, editors, and staffers as they share the stories behind their recipes development.

A wide variety of D.I.Y. projects means that there's something here for everyone. Unlike typical D.I.Y. books that focus on one category, this book delivers a wide variety of projects, from jams and pickles like Grandma used to make to artisanal cheeses and cured meats that you usually have to pay top dollar for at a specialty shop. You'll even learn how to make many of your favorite store-bought guilty pleasures (think potato chips and chocolate sandwich cookies). The test kitchen has also developed recipes for beverages like root beer, cold-brew coffee, and vermouth. There's something here for all interests and skill levels, whether you're a seasoned pro or simply a curious cook.
