The Complete Cooking For Two Cookbook

Regular price $50.00

By America's Test Kitchen.  Paperback.

The 10th anniversary edition of the New York Times bestseller—more than 640,000 sold—updated with more than 200 new recipes, new photography, and updated equipment buying recommendations.

Learn the ins and outs of successful small-scale cooking from the experts who wrote the book on it. This groundbreaking collection was the first to reengineer recipes to serve just two and even after 10 years it is still the essential reference. America's Test Kitchen scaled down 700+ of our best recipes including the trickiest dishes, from soups and stews to meatloaf and pot roast, even cakes and pies. We did the math to take the guesswork out of cooking for two so that you can be sure that anything you want to make, whether it's lasagna or a batch of fudgy brownies, will come out perfectly every time.

This go-to resource shows you how to save time and money in the kitchen by learning clever shopping strategies to reduce waste, smart storage tricks to keep food fresher longer, and special recipes designed to use up pesky leftover ingredients like half a can of beans or the rest of a butternut squash or cabbage.
