"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"-- Provided by publisher.

If you've ever found yourself stuck in front of the stove at your own party, scrambling to get everything to the table at just the right moment, Ina is here to let you in on her secrets! Thanks to twenty years of running a specialty food store and fifteen years writing cookbooks, she has learned exactly which dishes you can prep, assemble, or cook ahead of time. Whether you're hosting a party or simply making dinner on a hectic weeknight, Ina gives you lots of amazing recipes that taste just as good--or even better!--when they're made in advance. In Make It Ahead, each recipe includes clear instructions for what you can do ahead of time, and how far in advance, so you can cook with confidence and eliminate last-minute surprises. Make a pitcher of Summer Rose Sangria filled with red berries, let it chill overnight for the flavors to develop, and you have a delicious drink to offer your friends the minute they arrive. Simmer a pot of Wild Mushroom & Farro Soup, enjoy a bowl for lunch, and freeze the rest for a chilly evening. You can prep the kale, Brussels sprouts, and lemon vinaigrette for Winter Slaw ahead of time and simply toss them together before serving. Assemble French Chicken Pot Pies filled with artichokes and fresh tarragon a day in advance and then pop them in the oven half an hour before dinner. And for dessert, everyone needs the recipe for Ina's Decadent (gluten-free!) Chocolate Cake topped with Make-Ahead Whipped Cream. Ina also includes recipes for the biggest cooking day of the year--Thanksgiving! Her Ultimate Make-Ahead Roast Turkey and Gravy with Onions & Sage may just change your life.
