In our first ever menu cookbook, you'll find over 250 foolproof recipes. More importantly? You'll find dozens of exhaustively tested, easy to implement, creative and clever menus. Whether you're hosting a casual backyard summer get together or a more formal holiday meal. America's Test Kitchen has it all right here in this thoughtful collection.
Unlike other menu books, this is completely vetted. The Test Kitchen took the same attention to detail they have for recipe development and applied it to menu development. If a test cook couldn't get the menu on the table for 8 without running into issues, it didn't make the cut. We offer make ahead options: easy solutions for sides, appetizers, and desserts; and impressive main courses.
Leave it to America's Test Kitchen to put the brains behind the menus--all the home cook has to do is buy the groceries and get to work in the kitchen! You'll find four sections devoted to the four seasons and an additional fifth section about Big Celebrations (serving 12 or more). Plus we always include one extra serving in case an unexpected guest shows up for dinner.
