Author/Actors/Director/etc.: Editors at America's Test Kitchen
Publisher: Cook's Illustrated (2012, Mar 1st).
Most quick recipe collections promise a lot but deliver very little. Bland, uninspired dishes may be fast, but will you make them again? And clever gimmicks sound great, but in reality they rarely make much sense. The team at America's Test Kitchen has created more than 200 easy-to-make 30 minute recipes that guarantee impressive results from a minimum of effort. With a little test kitchen know-how, we found ways to make naturally fast dishes even faster, and traditionally slow-cooked dinners a weeknight option. But one thing we never did was settle on shortcuts that shortchanged flavor. Some compromises simply aren't worth making, and a few extra minutes of cooking translate to time well spent. No matter the path taken, every recipe in this book is foolproof, full-flavored, and fast. moreMore Info | Google Books | Check Availability
