  • Braised red potatoes with lemon and chives

      Interesting technique to cook off the water and then the butter. Fantastic flavor and crispy cut sides.

  • Italian chicken soup with Parmesan dumplings

    • ashallen on June 23, 2021

      This soup was fine, but I didn't love it enough to repeat, particularly since it requires some extra effort to make (searing chicken thighs, making homemade toasted bread crumbs, mixing and rolling allll those little dumplings). The dumplings were tender and delicious - I'll use that part of the recipe for other soups. But I thought the rest of the soup was just so-so with flavors that seemed kind of muddied. It was also a very hearty soup packed with lots of chicken and vegetables - I would have preferred a simpler, more broth-y soup with those yummy dumplings. It also didn't help that I overshot the cooking temperature for the chicken by 15F which probably made it more rubbery than it should have been. Leftover buttermilk biscuits worked well in place of sandwich bread for the dumpling bread crumbs.

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.
