Explore the Why and How of Cooking

Discover a brand-new way of cooking with Cook’s Illustrated at your side. Since 1993, our award-winning (ad-free!) magazine has empowered home cooks everywhere with the reliable recipes and resources they need to cook with confidence. Our approach to recipes is unique in that we analyze each variable of a recipe (ingredients, cooking times, temperature, tools, etc.) to determine how it impacts the finished dish, making changes until the recipe is the best version possible. Each issue features recipes with step-by-step photos, nutritional information, linked how-to videos available on our site, reader-submitted quick tips, science sidebars, and unbiased product reviews.

"There is a lot of creative cooking in this magazine. It's just good, common-sense, everyday cooking."
