Vegetables Illustrated

This authoritative, practical, and inspirational guide could only have come from Cook’s Illustrated. Our easy-to-master techniques will broaden your vegetable horizons in endless ways. Discover reinvented versions of everyday favorites—potatoes scored 36 recipes, and broccoli, broccolini, or broccoli rabe star in 28 recipes—and exciting introductions to everything you’d find at the farmers' market, from fiddleheads and garlic scapes to kohlrabi and baby pattypan squash. Dive in for meaty and meat-free mains, apps, soups, pasta, and even baked goods and desserts. Vegetables Illustrated has you covered for every vegetable and every season.

Hardcover, 700+ Recipes

Food Processor Perfection

A look at the seafood counter reveals a wide variety of fish, from mild in flavor and flaky in texture to rich and meaty. In Foolproof Fish, we show you how versatile they all are by providing approachable recipes, most of which you can make with more than one kind of fish. You're guaranteed a flavorful meal no matter what you bring home from the market or monger. We'll broaden your seafood scope by incorporating it into any course—vibrant appetizers such as Sizzling Garlic Shrimp and Peruvian Fish Ceviche with Radishes and Orange; lots of easy weeknight meals such as Moroccan Fish and Couscous Packets and Tuna Steaks with Cucumber-Peanut Salad; elegant dinner party fare such as Roasted Whole Side of Salmon with Orange Beurre Blanc; and comforting soups like Cod in Coconut Broth with Lemon Grass and Ginger.
