America’s Test Kitchen: Complete TV Show Cookbook through 2014 (Kindle or Hardcover)
Dear Home Cook,
It’s hard to believe that the America’s Test Kitchen television show will be in its 14th season on the air. Since our premiere in 2001, the test cooks and editors here have spent thousands of hours in our “office”—our very real 2,500 square-foot test kitchen—testing, tweaking, and retesting recipes until we come up with what we agree to be the very best recipe that is guaranteed to work for you…the first time and every time you make it.
It is this simple yet powerful premise of figuring why a recipe works—and why it doesn’t work—that has made the show the most watched cooking show on public television. And for that I thank you.
In 2009, we published the 10th anniversary omnibus TV show companion edition that featured all recipes and discoveries from the first ten seasons. For the 14th season, we thought we’d make the book even more useful by updating The Complete America’s Test Kitchen TV Show Cookbook to include every recipe, rating, and discovery from all 14 years. That’s more than 900 foolproof recipes! Order your copy today for just $19.95 (a 55% discount off the $45 cover price).

Every recipe from the 2014 season is included
in The Complete America’s Test Kitchen
TV Show Cookbook! From 2001-2014. (Yes. Really.)
Every single recipe that has ever been featured on our television show over the past 14 years is in this book, and each one has been tested 20, 50, sometimes as many as 100 times, until it is guaranteed to work every time. But we don’t just give you the recipe; we tell you exactly how we made it foolproof and the pitfalls to avoid for the hundreds of recipes found inside.
