Cook's Illustrated Revolutionary Recipes. 25 years of Groundbreaking Recipes. Exclusive Collector's Edition with 50 Bonus Recipes! Cover Price: $50.00. Your Price: $34.99.
Dear friend,
Has it really been 25 years since our first issue? It just doesn’t seem possible until I think about all the recipes I’ve tasted in our test kitchens over the years. We’re talking thousands of bites. Two daughters were born, grew up, and left the nest since I started work at Cook’s Illustrated in 1993. Suffice it to say they changed much more than the magazine, as we left well enough alone—all the detailed play-by-play of the recipe trial and error in our test kitchens, breakthrough “aha” moments explained by science, extensively researched product ratings, and ingenious quick tips submitted by home cooks.
To mark this major milestone, our editors and test cooks compiled the most groundbreaking, innovative recipes from 25 years of Cook’s Illustrated into one book. Appropriately called Revolutionary Recipes, this big, beautiful, giftable hardcover book is packed with glorious full-page photos. And each recipe is accompanied by the original essay and sidebars from the print edition. The collector’s edition—which is not available in bookstores or from online retailers—includes 50 additional recipes, each with a full-page photo.

“I have trouble cooking pork chops. Or at least I did until I read Cook’s Illustrated magazine.”

We harness the intense heat of the broiler to produce juicy meat and crisp skin.
Our recipe for One-Hour Broiled Chicken and Pan Sauce tops our famous Weeknight Roast Chicken recipe by shaving 35 minutes off the total time required (prep to plate). How did we do it? A chicken, a pair of kitchen shears, a paring knife, and a strategically placed oven rack add up to a golden-brown, juicy, tender, hands-off broiled chicken and sauce fit for any night of the week.
No gummy coating on these pan-fried pork chops: Cornflakes, cornstarch, and buttermilk are the secrets to better breading.
For a light and flavorful multigrain loaf, we turn to an unexpected source: seven-grain hot cereal mix.
To highlight the pure butternut squash flavor, this recipe makes use of the whole vegetable—even the fibers and seeds.
To transform eye-round roast into an impressive centerpiece, cook it in a low oven and then turn off the heat.
A dunk in salted water before baking and a brush of oil at the end produces well-seasoned potatoes with fluffy interiors and crisp skins.
When exactly does a potato reach it’s dry and fluffy stage—the point at which it’s done? We cooked bushels of potatoes, placing probes at exterior points and removing them at different temperatures, then checking the temperature of the potatoes’ cores with a digital thermometer. Once we had the optimal time and temperatures, we tested various methods to reach them. Then we took on the skin, figuring out a crisping and seasoning strategy. Now you can have The Perfect Baked Potato anytime, everytime.
Bread flour gives our cupcakes enough structure to support an ultrachocolaty crumb and a rich ganache center.
Oil-poaching delicate fish fillets in the oven makes this recipe hands-off and foolproof.
Enhancing store-bought broth with ground chicken and aromatics yields a rich-tasting base for this easy soup.
A panade made with soft bread and buttermilk keeps our meatballs moist, tender, and cohesive.

Surprisingly few!) and includes quotes from fans, such as this one about our Chewy Brownies recipe: “If I want to welcome a neighbor, give a little gift to someone, this is IT.
