Win It!: The Science of Good Cooking

This is currently my favorite cookbook, so I’m super excited that the generous people at America’s Test Kitchen have offered up a copy for a lucky Kate’s Recipe Box reader! The Science of Good Cooking breaks down cooking into managable concepts and include the science behind them in addition to recieps that demonstrate the techniques.

You can read my full review here.

It’s a great book for beginners to kitchen experts, which is why I included it in yesterday’s post about gift ideas for cooks and foodies.

  1. I would love to learn how to ferment foods – make my own pickles and sauerkraut. I’ve heard fermented foods are so good for your body.

  2. Wow this is great timing because I was just looking at possibly getting this book. Thanks for taking the time to write such a great review and for the giveaway opportunity. I’d like to take a closer look at the chapter “Create Layers for a Breading That Sticks” because I get so frustrated when I take the time to bread a cut of meat only to have it fall off during cooking. Ugh!

  3. I’m afraid to touch raw meat. There might not be anything about that in the book, but I feel better now that I’ve admitted it.

  4. I’m afraid of touching raw meat. Not sure if there’s anything in there to help me with that, but I feel better having admitted it. And I like you on FB. And in real life.

  5. I am generally afraid of more complicated baking projects. I can do simple breads and what not but have never worked with yeast or some of the more complicated projects. The sad thing is, my boyfriend is actually trying to teach me… he bakes bread and things all the time. I may love to cook but baking is a whole different beast with the yeast! :=)

  6. Every time I try to make a yeast bread it never works out, so I’ve given up! I would like to try to tackle an easy yeast bread.

  7. I’m a fb fan as well :). I’d love to just gain more confidence in the kitchen. I get very intimidated when it comes to cooking.

  8. I would love to be able to make homemade pretzels, but working with yeast intimidates me. I would love to learn more about yeast breads so that I can conquer that fear!
