Join Tyler Florence as he perfects, simplifies, and totally re-invents your favorite comfort dishes in surprising, spectacular ways. Have you ever wondered which cheese, exactly, will make the stretchiest, cheesiest mac and cheese? Or if you can make Hollandaise sauce without fear, a double boiler, or even a whisk? Or if, instead of having to choose between onion rings or French fries, you can make onion rings crusted with French fries? Tyler Florence has. These are the kinds of questions he obsesses over when he thinks about how to make cooking both easier and more exciting. For years, while shuttling between his restaurants and TV shoots, Tyler's kept a notebook of ideas to push his own recipes out of their comfort zone. Now, for the first time in his career, he's established a culinary lab where he can dive deep into the hows, whys, and why-nots of his cooking. He brings you Inside the Test Kitchen to see his experiments, the wins and the fails, and of course, the delicious, foolproof, and surprising recipes that come out of it. 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.

display_description "Tyler Florence set up his Test Kitchen to find and share the best ways to make his fans' favorite dishes, classics like meatloaf, fried chicken, and cheesecake. But along the way, he and his team had so much fun that they didn't stop at tweaking these recipes--they utterly reinvented many of them. In Test Kitchen, Tyler teaches you the know-how to make your favorite dishes really work: from rich cheesecakes that don't require baking to risotto you can make without standing for 30 minutes at the stove. And then there are the mind-benders: Onion rings coated in French fries, and a hamburger bun you can make, from scratch, in about the same amount of time it takes to make the burger. Along the way, he shows us some of the greatest misses along with the hits, letting us peek inside his test kitchen, and helping us cook with confidence and come out with great flavor every time"--
