Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Indian-style spinach with fresh cheese (Saag paneer)

    • ashallen on October 13, 2019

      So far I've only used this recipe to make paneer - not the saag curry part. This was my first time making paneer, but the instructions were easy to follow and the cheese turned out super! Firm, creamy, and sturdy enough to handle being sautéed before getting mixed into a curry. [Cross-post for Annual Edition/Magazine.]

  • French apple cake

    • emiliang on October 13, 2013

      Delicious, light, and easy to prepare. Texture in between a cake and a custard. Great for entertaining at home or for taking along to a dinner party because it needs to be prepared at least 3-4 hours before serving. Skipped the apple brandy and it was still great. Don't have a microwave so I sauteed the apples for a few minutes on the stove instead in a little bit of the oil.

Publishers Text

Cook's Illustrated is dedicated to finding the best methods for preparing foolproof home-cooked meals. Unlike some glossy cooking magazines, our magazine is staffed with cooks and editors not food stylists. Our 2,500 square foot test kitchen — the same kitchen in which we film our public television show, America's Test Kitchen — has three dozen full-time test cooks whose 9 to 5 job (well maybe 7 to 6 on baking days) is testing and retesting recipes 20, 30, sometimes 50 times until we can offer our readers a recipe we're confident will work every time. (Of course you have to promise to follow our recipes for those foolproof results.)

We also offer ratings and reviews of cookware and kitchen equipment to inform you how different models compare and compete so that you can shop smart. We taste test supermarket ingredients and kitchen staples you use every day, so you know which brands taste best, and which are best avoided. And because Cook's Illustrated is 100% advertising FREE, you get unbiased, objective information.
