    In the Press

    I’m going through a pare down / less-is-more phase in my life right now, and so I’m not letting any new cookbooks into my house until one goes out. But I’d happily hand over any cookbook in exchange for this one. Not only is it such a pleasure to read through a cookbook without having to mentally scale down all the ingredients (0.5 eggs, anyone?), but the folks at America’s Test Kitchen have a knack for nailing down the perfect recipe with clear instructions.

    -Christina Lane, Dessert for Two

    Just in time for wedding season, this bible for couples’ cooking helps two-person households limit leftovers, curb kitchen waste and prepare perfectly portioned and delicious dishes. Make dinners, desserts, breakfasts and other entrées for two, not the typical four to six servings.
