The Book

A Provocative Collection of 100 Game-Changing Recipes from America’s Test Kitchen

If you could only have 100 recipes at your disposal, what would they be? In 100 Recipes: The Absolute Best Ways to Make the True Essentials, the editors at America’s Test Kitchen present what they consider to be the recipes everyone should know how to make—these are the dishes that will give anyone the culinary chops they need to succeed in the kitchen.

The Absolute Essentials

Brimming with attitude and innovation, this thoughtful cookbook is organized into three sections: The Absolute Essentials, The Surprising Essentials, and The Global Essentials (see full recipe list). The editors considered three factors—utility, inventiveness, and diversity—when whittling down the choices. An essay introduces and positions each dish, explaining why it matters, the challenges in making it, and how our test kitchen arrived at a bulletproof recipe.
