is the result of thousands of hours of testing to determine the techniques
that deliver big flavor in less time--all from scratch. Starting with
building block recipes for basic quick cooking techniques such as
sautéing, grilling, or stir-frying, the editors of Cook's Illustrated
developed more than 300 flavorful recipes, including honey-glazed
pork loin with fennel and carrots, lemon pudding cake, stir-fried
chicken with green beans in spicy orange sauce, and 30-minute tart
tatin. Each recipe requires less than 60 minutes (many less than 30)
from ingredient prep and assembly through cooking and/or cooling,
and most recipes require 10 or fewer ingredients. In addition to developing
quick recipes that do not sacrifice taste, the editors have identified
supermarket ingredients that save time without sacrificing flavor.
More than 200 illustrations provide shortcuts for techniques, including
shaping biscuits and scones, stuffing chicken breasts, or seeding
tomatoes. All 309 of the recipes in this 464-page, hardcover cookbook
are new to The Best Recipe Series, and 85 have never appeared in Cook's
