Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Mexican corn salad (Esquites)

    • jenmacgregor18 on September 05, 2019

      Too soupy & sour with the sour cream and lime juice. Not what I was expecting at all. Having never eaten esquites before, I don't know if this is a good representation of what it is supposed to be. It's definitely not a repeat for me though. May try the Serious Eats or other version - without sour cream on top of lime juice.

  • Peruvian fish ceviche with radishes and orange

    • mrsmadam on February 15, 2019

      I was searching for something to replicate the ceviche I had at Nasca 21 in Panama City. While this isn’t it it’s close enough to satisfy. Marinating the radishes tamed them enough so that my radish adverse husband actually enjoyed them. I substituted sea bass as it was looking better than the red snapper.

  • Crispy tacos (Tacos dorados)

    • sarahawker on October 10, 2018

      These are WONDERFUL. I've made these at least half a dozen times and varied between beef and chicken.

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.
