Summary:
"Tyler Florence set up his Test Kitchen to find and share the best ways to make his fans' favorite dishes, classics like meatloaf, fried chicken, and cheesecake. But along the way, he and his team had so much fun that they didn't stop at tweaking these recipes--they utterly reinvented many of them. In Test Kitchen, Tyler teaches you the know-how to make your favorite dishes really work: from rich cheesecakes that don't require baking to risotto you can make without standing for 30 minutes at the stove. And then there are the mind-benders: Onion rings coated in French fries, and a hamburger bun you can make, from scratch, in about the same amount of time it takes to make the burger. Along the way, he shows us some of the greatest misses along with the hits, letting us peek inside his test kitchen, and helping us cook with confidence and come out with great flavor every time"--

Summary

Summary

No one does updated comfort food better than Tyler Florence, whether that means a down-home classic like fried chicken or a more contemporary interpretation like popcorn grits. Tyler asked his 538,000 Twitter followers to help curate the dishes they want to be able to re-create at home-and he's delivering with new methods and 120 recipes, all documented with step-by-step photography.

In Inside the Test Kitchen, Tyler gives readers the know-how to make their favorite dishes work with exciting new twists, from onion rings that use frozen french fries for their crisp coating to super-quick buns you can actually make from scratch in the time you make your burgers. He shares the insight that gives cooks the tools to ensure their dishes come out with great flavor every time. But this is more than a cookbook; it's a culinary superstar in conversation with his hundreds of thousands of fans.

Publisher's Weekly Review

In his newest volume, Florence attempts to discover the best approaches for over 100 dishes. Some, like DIY bacon, tortilla chips, and ricotta, and the use of a mixture of meats for meatloaf and burgers (Florence recommends a 50/50 mix of beef chuck and short rib) aren't exactly revelatory, but others, such as his Thanksgiving gravy that calls bacon, turkey backbone and a litany of vegetables and no-boil polenta gnocchi beg to be tried. Ingenious techniques such as poaching eggs in a muffin pan enable the cook to prepare a dozen at a time and riffs like French onion arancini, in which balls of risotto are stuffed with brie and caramelized onions, breaded, and the fried will send readers scurrying to the closest grocery store. Some of his "perfect" recipes are labor-intensive, such as Wayfare Tavern's fried chicken, which is roasted and cooled before frying, but he also suggests spatchcocking your Thanksgiving turkey to cut roasting time in half and includes a time-saving risotto and a basic mix that can be used for pancakes, waffles, muffins, cakes and even cookies. Whether readers are looking to save time or create the ultimate burger, scrambled eggs or pork chops, Florence and his staff have the answers. (Nov.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
