Giveaway: The Cook’s Illustrated Cookbook

In this giveaway we have a copy of The Cook’s Illustrated Cookbook. This cookbook has 2,000 fully tested recipes full of illustrations spanning 928 pages!

The Cook’s Illustrated Cookbook Giveaway

Included in this giveaway is one copy of The Cook’s Illustrated Cookbook.

From America’s Test Kitchen:

The ultimate recipe resource: an indispensable treasury of more than 2,000 foolproof recipes and 150 test kitchen discoveries from the pages of Cook’s Illustrated magazine.

There is a lot to know about cooking, more than can be learned in a lifetime, and for the last 20 years we have been eager to share our discoveries with you, our friends and readers.

The Cook’s Illustrated Cookbook represents the fruit of that labor. It contains 2,000 recipes, representing almost our entire repertoire. (Older versions of a recipe were sometimes discarded in favor of better, newer approaches.)

Looking back over this work as we edited this volume, we were reminded of some of our greatest hits, from Foolproof Pie Dough (we add vodka for an easy-to-roll-out but flaky crust), innumerable recipes based on brining and salting meats (our Brined Thanksgiving Turkey in 1993 launched a nationwide trend), Slow-Roasted Beef (we salt a roast a day in advance and then use a very low oven to promote a tender, juicy result), Poached Salmon (a very shallow poaching liquid steams the fish instead of simmering it in water and robbing it of flavor), and the Ultimate Chocolate Chip Cookies (we brown the butter for better flavor).

Our editors handpicked more than 2,000 recipes from the pages of the magazine to form this wide-ranging compendium of our greatest hits:

  • Bring Old-Fashioned Drive-in Burgershome—loosely packing a fresh-ground mixture of short ribs and sirloin steak tips yields a crusty, incredibly juicy burger.
  • For superb, uncommonly easy French Fries, use Yukon Golds, start them in half the typical amount of cold, not hot, oil and fry them just once.
  • Our Almost Hands-Free Risottorecipe dumps in almost all the liquid at once, requires just a few stirs, and turns out rich and velvety grains.
  • Enjoy parlor-quality New York–Style Pizzaby doing the opposite of what most recipes tell you—move the pie to the oven’s highest rack for a crisp, chewy crust.

    More than just a great collection of foolproof recipes, The Cook’s Illustrated Cookbook is also an authoritative cooking reference with clear hand-drawn illustrations for preparing the perfect omelet, carving a turkey, removing meat from lobsters, frosting a layer cake, shaping sandwich bread, and more.

    150 test kitchen tips throughout the book solve real-home-cooking problems such as how to revive tired herbs, why you shouldn’t buy trimmed leeks, what you need to know about freezing and thawing chicken, when to rinse rice, and the best method for seasoning cast-iron (you can even run it through the dishwasher).

    An essential collection for fans of Cook’s Illustrated (and any discerning cook), The Cook’s Illustrated Cookbook will keep you cooking for a lifetime—and guarantees impeccable results. And with this exclusive promotion, you can be the first to order it- and at a significant savings off the cover price.

Here is a video to show just how much work went into the making of The Cook’s Illustrated Cookbook.

This giveaway is sponsored by America’s Test Kitchen. You can also purchase a copy of the book on Amazon here.
