MORE THAN 300 EXHAUSTIVELY TESTED RECIPES THAT CELEBRATE AMERICAN CUISINE Step into our test kitchen and learn how to make truly great American food. Want to know how to keep lemon meringue pie from weeping or which type of chocolate makes the best pudding? Want to capture the flavors of a real clambake on top of the stove? To find the answers to these and hundreds more questions, we made 28 lemon meringue pies, chopped our way through pounds of chocolate, and steamed enough clams to feed a small town. In addition, weve included more than 200 illustrations plus no-nonsense equipment ratings and taste tests of supermarket ingredients.The Best American Classics features more than 300 recipes that cover the wide range of American cooking. Choose from favorite regional dishes such as Chicago deep-dish pizza, New Orleans legendary red beans and rice, or New York cheesecake. Or select beloved family fare like chicken pot pie, glazed meatloaf, and green bean casserole. Restaurant classics are here as well, from Parker House rolls and Waldorf salad to bananas foster. The Best American Classics celebrates the breadth of our cuisine with foolproof recipes that will stand the test of time.Real Boston Baked Beans that are worth the wait If you want to make Boston baked beans that are a cut above the tourist variety, youll need salt pork and bacon for authentic smoky flavor. And for best results, bake the beans for five hours, leaving the cover off the pot during the final hour to thicken the sauce to just the right consistency.Stovetop Mac n Cheese thats Silky Not Sticky This all-around family favorite appears in more guises than just about any other comfort food on the planet. But the best recipe, we found, is made on the stovetop (not baked) and uses evaporated milk in the sauce (not a fussy bchamel). All-American Meatloaf thats Crusty and Glazed Not Soggy For the best meatloaf, use a mix of meats (beef, pork, and veal). Then, select the right binders: cracker crumbs and breadcrumbs dont mask the flavor of the meat. Lastly, bake the loaf free-form (so it doesnt get soggy) and give it a double dose of glaze.Strawberry Shortcake That Tastes as Good as it Looks For a juicy filling that stays put between the biscuits, choose the ripest berries and then mash some of them into a chunky sauce and slice the rest. Left to sit with a little sugar, the mixture macerates, making a thick filling that soaks into the tender, easy-to-make biscuits.

For deep corn flavor, grate ears of corn to create a thick pulp bursting with fresh corn flavor, then add whole kernels at the last minute. And for richness and smoky flavor, saut salt pork and leave it in the chowder as it simmers.What is the secret to rich-tasting beef stew? First, use beef chuck and cut your own stew meat (for consistency of texture and flavor); then skip the flouring stepfloured meat gives stew a weak, less beefy flavor. And for the perfect texture overall, cook the stew in the oven after browning the meat and add the vegetables in stages.How do you make the ultimate French Onion soup? The best French onion soup starts with caramelized red onions (they have the most intense sweetness and complexity of flavor) and two types of brothchicken and beef broth. And for the perfect cheesy crust, use Asiago for flavor and Swiss for meltability.How do you make great chicken cacciatore? Start with skin-on, bone-in chicken thighs for the deepest flavor, then discard the skin after the initial saut to prevent the stew from becoming greasy. Add portobellos for earthy flavor and build a robust sauce with red wine and a Parmesan rind.

NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY EATER.COM From one of America’s finest food writers, the former restaurant critic for The New York Times, comes a definitive, timeless guide to Thanksgiving dinner—preparing it, surviving it, and pulling it off in style. From the planning of the meal to the washing of the last plate, Thanksgiving poses more—and more vexing—problems for the home cook than any other holiday. In this smartly written, beautifully illustrated, recipe-filled book, Sam Sifton, the Times’s resident Thanksgiving expert, delivers a message of great comfort and solace: There is no need for fear. You can cook a great meal on Thanksgiving. You can have a great time. With simple, fool-proof recipes for classic Thanksgiving staples, as well as new takes on old standbys, this book will show you that the fourth Thursday of November does not have to be a day of kitchen stress and family drama, of dry stuffing and sad, cratered pies. You can make a better turkey than anyone has ever served you in your life, and you can serve it with gravy that is not lumpy or bland but a salty balm, rich in flavor, that transforms all it touches. Here are recipes for exciting side dishes and robust pies and festive cocktails, instructions for setting the table and setting the mood, as well as cooking techniques and menu ideas that will serve you all year long, whenever you are throwing a big party. Written for novice and experienced cooks alike, Thanksgiving: How to Cook It Well is your guide to making Thanksgiving the best holiday of the year. It is not fantasy. If you prepare, it will happen. And this book will show you how. Advance praise for Thanksgiving “If you don’t have Thanksgiving, you are not really having Thanksgiving. This book is as essential to the day as the turkey itself. It’s an expert, gently opinionated guide to everything from the cranberry sauce to the table setting to the divvying up of the leftovers, but it’s also a paean to the holiday and an evocation of both its past and its promising future. Sam Sifton’s Thanksgiving world is the one I want to live in.”—Gabrielle Hamilton, bestselling author of Blood, Bones, & Butter “The charm of Sam Sifton’s Thanksgiving is that he proposes that home cooks treat this culinary Olympics like any other dinner party—don’t panic, deconstruct your tasks into bite-size pieces, and conquer that fear of failure. Sam could talk a fledgling doctor through his first open-heart surgery. It’s all here—from brining to spatchcocking, sides to desserts—and served up with a generous dollop of reassuring advice from one of America’s most notable food writers.”—Christopher Kimball, editor of Cook’s Illustrated and host of America’s Test Kitchen From the Hardcover edition.

Recipes don't have to be fast to be simple The Best Slow & Easy Recipes gives you more than 250 recipes that show you why building flavor slower is sometimes better - and easier. The appeal of cooking food slowly is undeniable; a moderate oven temperature and extended cooking time can build rich, concentrated flavor and yield tender, juicy meat. But when most of us think of dishes that are slow cooking by nature - such as roasts, braises, and stews - we think of an all-day affair requiring constant attention, something to prepare for a special occasion or when you can commit a full day to the task. But in fact, in many cases just the opposite is true. These dishes are, for the most part, easy - although they take time, the process is largely unattended, leaving you free to simply walk away. You'll find all the classic slow-cooked dishes here - dishes where time, slow simmering, and gentle heat work their magic. We promise it's worth the wait.

No one likes a tough roast, a leathery chop, or a boring burger. And because meat is so expensive, mistakes are simply not acceptable - that is, unless you work at America's Test Kitchen. Our job is to test every possible cut and technique, along with countless skillets, knives, and roasting pans. We like to say that we make all the mistakes first, so you don't have to. Our recipes have been tested - and retested - so that we know which cut is best for a particular recipe, which cooking techniques work)and which ones don't - and which pieces of equipment are essential. Want your holiday ham to come out right? Too scared to try prime rib at home? Is it possible to make real barbecued spareribs on a conventional backyard grill? The Best Meat Recipes contains more than 300 foolproof recipes - everything from grilled T-bone steaks and beef burgundy to shish kebab and smothered pork chops. And since great meat recipes begin at the meat counter, we've included an opinionated shopping guide that rates 70 poluar cuts for flavor and value. We tell you which roasts are worth the money and which roasts are not worth the trouble. You'll learn why the best steaks come from the short loin and why a bone-in spiral-cut ham from the shank end is our favorite choice. If you love meat, now you can really enjoy it with all the best recipes gathered here in one complete and practical cookbook.
