Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Best baked potatoes

    • twoyolks on May 26, 2016

      They were baked potatoes. They tasted like baked potatoes. I'm not really sure what else I should've been expecting. They were fine as baked potatoes.

    • Skamper on February 15, 2018

      This is my go-to baked potato.

  • Red lentil soup with North African spices

    • wittwoman on April 10, 2016

      Really interesting, complex flavor. Like that the soup isn't completely pureed.

  • Fluffy dinner rolls

    • anya_sf on November 28, 2020

      Really great, buttery flavor, soft-yet-sturdy layered texture. Still fresh the next day. Be sure to use 11 oz flour, not 2 cups, which in my experience is more like 9-10 oz. I was a little confused by the head note that says the dough needs to rest for at least 2 hours before baking; that turned out just to be 2 standard 1-hour rises.

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 ó the same kitchen in which we film our public television show, America's Test Kitchen ó 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.
