America’s Test Kitchen (ATK) releases its latest annual featuring recipes, equipment reviews, and “tastings” written, tested, and edited by its cooks, editors, and cookware specialists. The book highlights a wonderful variety of flavor profiles and takes inspiration from world cuisine; cooks of all skill levels are sure to find a recipe worth trying. In typical ATK fashion, detailed introductions explain why each recipe works, discuss its history, and offer in-depth instructions on what it should look like while it cooks for best results. Notes from the test kitchen will up readers’ home-cooking game with tips and tricks, while chapters dedicated to soups, salads, starters, pasta, pizza, sandwiches, meat, poultry, seafood, breakfast, brunch, breads, and desserts guarantee that they’ll find the perfect recipe. A “Test Kitchen Resources” section also provides quick tips, kitchen basics with illustrations, “tastings and testings,” nutrition information, and conversions/equivalents for recipes.
VERDICT You can’t go wrong with ATK. From pho to Korean scallion pancakes to that pandemic staple, banana bread, or a single serving set of chocolate chip cookies, readers are likely to find a recipe worth the effort.
