Master Science in the Kitchen With This Book Set

The test kitchen that put food science on the map with decades of research, fascinating experiments, endless trial and error, millions of dollars spent on ingredients, equipment, and man hours bring all of the above to life in these two books. Filled with classic recipes that explain how to build flavor and cook anything better, this is a must-have set for science-minded cooks.

The Science of Good Cooking

Organized around 50 core principles our test cooks use to develop foolproof recipes, The Science of Good Cooking is a radical new approach to teaching the fundamentals of the kitchen. These experiments range from simple to playful to innovative - showing you why you should fold (versus stir) batter for chewy brownies, why you whip egg whites with sugar, and why the simple addition of salt can make meat juicy.

Cook's Science

The Test Kitchen team at Cook’s Illustrated has spent nearly 25 years learning how to prepare good food at home. Cook’s Science focuses on 50 essential ingredients and investigates the science of making them taste their very best. Understanding how ingredients work—at the molecular level as well as at the stovetop—allows you to amplify flavor and perfect their structure when you cook. Ingredients range from butter to kale, chicken breasts to pork butt, lobster to garlic.
