A Scientist in the kitchen
If you approach cooking more like a chemist than most home cooks, a new book from the editors at Cook’s Illustrated might be right for you.
At America’s Test Kitchen, editors have been investigating the best ways to make dishes for 20 years. They’ve compiled the 50 basic cooking concepts into the new “The Science of Good Cooking.” No gastronomy, liquid nitrogen or anything like that, just more than 400 solid recipes. The hardcover book is $40.
Look inside today’s Food section on Page 3 for a recipe from the book for Juicy Pub-Style Burgers.
