Picks and Pans Review: The New Best Recipe

from the Editors of Cook's Illustrated

This 990-pager isn't for readers who crave lively commentary and gorgeous photos. Instead, the new edition of the best recipes from Cook's Illustrated—the ad-free bimonthly that spawned America's Test Kitchen on PBS—will please those who groove to the cooking-geek sensibility of CI editor Christopher Kimball. Want to know the science behind brining? Looking for a foolproof recipe for chicken pot pie? It's all here—along with shortcuts and inspired techniques: To crush peppercorns, for example, dump into a Ziploc and pound with a rolling pin.
