America’s Test Kitchen Twentieth Anniversary TV Show Cookbook: Best-Ever Recipes from the Most Successful Cooking Show on TV

America’s Test Kitchen. Oct. 2019. 592p. ed. by ed. by America’s Test Kitchen. ISBN 9781945256882. $40. COOKING
This collection from America’s Test Kitchen is densely packed with recipes and know-how gleaned from 20 years of the long-running America’s Test Kitchen show on PBS. Many entries include information about varying the base recipe by using different seasonings or ingredients. However, the book lacks an index, making it difficult to find specific recipes. In addition, the book doesn’t include an an overall table of contents, though a recipe list is featured at the beginning of each chapter. The real highlight is the cast confidential section, which offers biographies of the contributing chefs, and includes their advice and beloved cookbooks.
VERDICT Despite some flaws, this volume would be helpful for home cooks interested in honing their techniques and building upon a base repertoire of recipes.
