Review: Inside the Test Kitchen by:Tyler Florence
About the Book:
Go from tricks to make basics brilliant—like saucing Double-Creamed Spinach with pureed spinach, or using boiling-hot brine to make a Super-Crisp Roast Chicken— to simpler ways to make the classics, like a nearly no-stir Time Saver Risotto and a Three-Minute Hollandaise, to pure reinvention, like Fronion Rings and almost-instant Modern Burger Buns.
Through these 120 recipes, Tyler invites you to question culinary sacred cows, push your skills to the next level, and make food more delicious than they would have thought possible.
About the Author:
TYLER FLORENCE is a Food Network star, author of twelve books, product designer, and the chef-owner of Wayfare Tavern in San Francisco and El Paseo in Mill Valley, California. He also produces wines under his California Crush label, and will open the Tyler Florence Test Kitchen, a culinary laboratory, think tank, and event space, in late 2014. He lives in California with his family.
I have always liked Tyler Florence, mainly because with each recipe he shares he tells you why he does things not just the how behind it all. He realizes that there are many of us out there that don't have a clue so he really tries to educate us. And Inside the Test Kitchen, he once again takes you under his wing and teaches you the basics. Before long you will be cooking, just like he does. I found the section really fascinating on how to build a better burger blend.
Tyler and his team, tested each recipe out and brought their findings back to us in the way of this cookbook. Each recipe is simplified and complete with pictures. And of course we have Tyler's helpful hints included. This book is the perfect one for a beginner or the experienced foodie.
