The New Essentials Cookbook, by America's Test Kitchen

Cooking well is about more than just knife skills and finding a favorite lasagna recipe. It’s about knowing when to reach for a nonstick skillet and when not to, why you “reverse sear” thick chops, and what umami really is. The New Essentials Cookbook presents a new approach to building on your skills and gaining culinary mastery with a lineup of what we consider today’s essential dishes, from Shrimp Pad Thai, Olive Oil Potato Gratin, and One-Pot “Baked” Ziti to Bacon and Cheddar Breakfast Sandwiches, Lemoniest Lemon Bars, and Molten Mocha Microwave Mug Cakes, each paired with insightful, practical “Think Like a Chef” sidebars with tips and how-tos to help you tackle all kinds of recipes with confidence.

Additional featured recipes include Butter-Basted Rib-Eye Steak, Smashed Cucumber Salad, Pan-Roasted Potatoes, Classic Homemade Chicken Broth, Creamy Parmesan Polenta, Sesame Noodles with Shredded Chicken, Easy Steak Frites, Crunchy Pork Chops with Winter Squash and Cranberry Sauce, Cheesy Stuffed Poblanos, Skillet Apple Crisp, Buttermilk Drop Biscuits, and more. Buy the cookbook HERE.
