Cook’s Bible/Dessert Bible, Christopher Kimball
A two-volume master class in home cooking from the host of America's Test Kitchen.
Cook's Illustrated founder and editor Christopher Kimball has spent years testing recipes to make them foolproof and as delicious as possible. Here, he takes the mystery out of cooking with more than 700 essential recipes you can trust.
What's the ideal ratio of oil to vinegar in vinaigrette? Ever wonder why cakes sometimes sink in the middle or why pie dough falls apart when rolled? What are the risks of using an 8-inch cake pan when a recipe calls for a 9-inch pan? Kimball has the answers, and he pairs his tried-and-true advice with hundreds of step-by-step illustrations.
This box set delivers the best and easiest ways to master every meal of the day. The Cook's Bible features all-time favorite preparations for soups, salads, vegetables, meat, fish, pizza, and pasta; The Dessert Bible shows you how to make tempting cakes, pies, cookies, ice cream, and more.
This beautiful compendium is a cooking school in book form for beginners and experienced cooks alike.
